ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Minnesota's firearms deer season opens Saturday, and wildlife managers say it should be a good one.

Minnesota's white tail deer population is about 1 million. The Department of Natural Resources expects this year's harvest to be in line with the 207,000 deer taken last year. The peak harvest was 290,000 in 2003 after a succession of mild winters.
