About half a million deer hunters will be out and about in Minnesota Saturday as the firearms deer season begins.
It began half an hour before sunrise.
The Department of Natural Resources said deer numbers are up, which could mean this year will be a good season for hunters.
Explore Minnesota said about 150,000 to 200,000 deer are harvested each year.
