Thursday is the first full day of autumn, and in Minnesota that means deer season is right around the corner. About a million deer roam Minnesota each year, making them the state’s most abundant big game animal. The state relies on hunters to keep the population under control.

“Hunting is really the only tool we have to maintain population,” said Emily Dunbar, who works with deer biologists at the DNR.
