​Deer hunting season is a special time in Minnesota bringing together friends and families to share in a special and long-held tradition.  This popular sport is part of the fabric of our state's culture.  Half a million Minnesotans will be sharing this tradition throughout the state this November 9th. 

To honor the great deer hunting tradition, educate our youth and promote ethical hunting practices, Governor Tim Walz and the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association, in partnership with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, Explore Minnesota and the Fergus Falls community are proud to announce the 2019 17th Annual Minnesota Governor's Deer Hunting Opener celebration.​



Many activities will take place during this year's celebration, taking place November 7th - 10th.  Throughout this event we will be focusing on community participation, and promoting the importance and excitement of the hunt - not only for herd management, but also for Minnesota's economy.



Join us in this year's celebration of our deer hunting heritage!
