American Legion Auxiliary Public Relations Ann Hamilton DNR: Deer hunters in Central Minnesota should have good year Brainetrl..The end is near, at least for those who've been wait- ing for the deer hunting season to open. Starting Nov. 9 the firearms season begins, thereby ending weeks of pre-season scouting, stand-building and anticipation. This year's deer harvest is ex- pected to be above average, per- haps the best ever, according to the Department of Natural Re- sources. "Deer hunting in east-central Minnesota should be good to excellent," said Henry Wulf, DNR regional widllife supervi- sor. "In many areas deer num- bers are probably as high as they have ever been." In response to the large deer herd, the DNR has issued a record number of antlerless deer hunting permits. This year 193,980 permits were issued. That's 40% more than last year and roughly 26,000 more than 1985, the previous record. Antlerless permits allow hunters to take a doe or young buck that has not yet grown antlers. "It's hard to say how many deer will be harvested statewide," said Wulf, noting that weather conditions are always an influencing considera- tion. Still, he said, firearms hunters will likely break last year's record of 166,589. In the Brainerd area, wildlife manager Dennis Hanson reports hunting success should be good to excellent. He said deer num- bers have risen because of for- est-wildlife habitat improvement projects and practices, back-to- back mild winters, and favorable nauual reproduction rates. "This year we issued the same number of antledess permits as we did in 1985, which was the most ever," said Hanson. "That year hunters took about 12,000 deer in Crow Wing, Wadena and southern Cass counties. I imagine we'll have a similar harvest this year." At Little Fails, wildlife man- ager Gary Johnson is anticipat- ing an excellent season, too. He said hunters in Morrison, Todd and Benton counties are holding about 20% more anflerless per- mits than last year. "A lot of the row crops ae al- Kimball Tri-Cunty New$--Thursday, Nov. 7, 1991 "Community Awareness Day" observed at Senior Dining Center 7 "Community Awareness Day" was observed at the Senior Dining Center Thursday. A number of members of the community, in addition to the Seniors, were present. / As part of the brief entertainment following the meal, Laura Sommers, who is 95 years old, recited a rather long poem from memory. Theresa Zahler, Senior Citizen Site Coordinator, one of those who wore Halloween costumes to the dinner, stands beside Laura. ready in," said Johnson. "That owes these groups a debt of across Aitkin County. He said tends to concentrate deer in the gratitude for having the fore- archery hunters and local folks woodlots and swamps and makes them more vulnerable." Johnson added that archers have had good success this year, especially in the Long Prairie area. "Several deer in the 230- pound class have been regis- tered," he said. At St. Cloud, wildlife manag- er Mike Maurer reports that an- terless permit numbers are up 10% from last year in Sher- bume, Wright and Stearns coun- nties. "In some areas permit numbers were not increased a bit," he said. "But in odor areas they increased by as much as 43%. Maurer said area conserva- tion clubs have been very active this past 5 years in helping acquire additional wildlife habi- tat. "Area sportsmens club plus local chafers of the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association, Pheasants Forever, Ducks Un- limited are investing time and dollars in acquiring habitat," said Maurer. "These folks are leaving a valuable legacy of land.  Maurer added that every- one who enjoys the out of doors sight to preserve wildlife habitat for future geneations. At Cambridge, wildlife man- ager Dave Pauly said the num- ber of antlerless permits have doubled and tripled from last year throughout Mille Lacs, Isanti and Chisago counties. "Those who receive antlerless permits shouldn't hesitate to use them," said Pauly. "I realize a lot of hunters hke to hold out for a buck, but truth is, we want pe 9- pie to put their permits to work. That's because antlerless permits are the primary tool we use for managing the size of the deer hcrd." At Hinckley, area wildlife manager Lee Hemness is also expecting hunters to have a good year. He said anflerless permit numbers have been doubled throughout Pine and Kanabec counties. Permit numbers were doubled at the 40,000-acre Mille Lacs Wildlife Management Area, said manager Dick Tuszynm. And at Aitkin, area wildlife manager Dave Dickey reported antlerless permits are up 45% have been seeing good numbers of deer. He expects hunting to be good to excellent.
