DULUTH — Minnesota’s youth firearms deer season will take place statewide Oct. 20-23. The season coincides with statewide teacher workshops — MEA weekend — so most Minnesota students don’t have school on those days.

To participate, youth must be 10-17 years old and obtain a deer license. Participant numbers are not limited and no special permit is needed, so parents should purchase or obtain a regular deer hunting license for the youth who will be hunting.

An adult parent, guardian, or mentor must accompany youth ages 10-13. All hunters and mentors, regardless of whether they are participating in youth deer season, must follow blaze orange/pink clothing requirements. Adults may not hunt.

Complete youth season details are available on the DNR youth deer hunting page at mndnr.gov/Hunting/Deer/Youth.html .
