Early antlerless-only deer season is Oct. 21-24

Hunters can participate in an early antlerless-only deer season from Thursday, Oct. 21, through Sunday, Oct. 24.

Hunters can participate in an early antlerless-only deer season from Thursday, Oct. 21, through Sunday, Oct. 24. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has expanded the early antlerless deer season to include more deer permit areas in central and southeastern Minnesota. The season increases opportunities for hunters in areas where deer populations are above population goals or where there is an increased risk of CWD spreading.

Permit areas open during the hunt are 213, 214, 215, 221, 227, 236, 277, 341, 342, 343, 604, 605, 643, 645, 646, 647, 648, 649, 655 and 701. The DNR offers this opportunity to hunters in an effort to manage local deer herds. Hunters need at least one early antlerless permit to participate and the limit is five deer, which is in addition to the statewide bag limit. Hunters can use additional permits to tag additional deer, and must purchase them before hunting. Deer hunting regulations are available on the DNR early antlerless hunt page.
