Halloween is now over and all the costumes are put away. But driving around this weekend I noticed some new costumes hanging outside... all of them are blaze orange. They are there waiting for the opening of the Minnesota deer season. Thousands of hunters will head for the woods this weekend hoping to harvest a deer.

The deer herd in most of the state is in great shape. If the weather is good, the harvest should be a good one.
