As the Minnesota firearms “A” deer hunting season concluded Sunday, Nov. 24, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources shared their preliminary numbers of harvested deer. Hunters still had time to register their deer as of the deadline on Monday, so numbers will likely increase somewhat.

The total harvest of deer statewide, including all permit types, is currently at 166,761 deer. This is down about 20,000 deer from the 2018 total harvest of 188,706.
