With deer hunting season such a brief period of the year, one hunter in northern Minnesota went to dangerous lengths to bag a buck.
Minnesota DNR conservation officer Don Bozovsky, who covers the Hibbing area, said that an incident reported last weekend saw a hunter sat in the passenger seat of a vehicle took aim and fired at a deer outside of the driver's side window.
The driver was sat behind the wheel, Bozovsky said, noting that "all sense of safety was disregarded."
When the vehicle was stopped, four citations were issued.
In other unusual deer occurrences last weekend, CO Tom Hemker – who covers the Winona area – received a pair of calls involving injured deer.
One of the injured deer had tried to enter a house via the patio door, while another "charged a hunter, cutting him in several locations."
