Hjalmar Johnson had made it to deer camp for 50 years in a row. But he couldn’t make it for Saturday’s Minnesota firearms deer opener.
The Warba hunter, 95, is recuperating at the Deer River Health Care Center in Deer River from complications after a blackout in September. Johnson and his brother, the late Waldemar “Baldy” Johnson, founded and built the Johnson deer camp in the woods near Warba in 1957.
Hjalmar Johnson, at 95, is the oldest living member of the Johnson deer camp near Warba. He and a brother started the camp in 1957, and it’s now in its 51st year. Johnson has been at the camp every year, but this year he is at the Deer River Health Care Center in Deer River, recuperating from illness.
