WILLMAR -- A hunter's heart can be found in the great outdoors, usually right after he or she has left lots of greenbacks in the great indoors.

The average hunter in Minnesota will spend $783 each year on goods and services related to their heart's desire. With some 597,000 people hunting each year in Minnesota, it adds up to over $482 million for the state's economy, according to "Hunting Works for Minnesota."
