The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is asking hunters to look for more than just deer this season.

The agency is asking hunters to be on the lookout for meth labs. The DNR says more meth labs are being set-up on public land and state forests.

Signs of a meth lab include large quantities of common household products like acetone, rubbing alcohol, cold pills, drain cleaner, lithium batteries and iodine.

There is certain equipment to look for as well: aluminum foil, bottles, funnels, cheese cloth and hot plates.

When mixed together, the products can become explosive or give off toxic fumes.
