We're now officially in deer hunting season with the bow hunting opener starting Saturday.

Something new this year, hunters will be able to track what they see while out in the field using a new tool from the Minnesota DNR.

The state agency has hundreds of researchers and experts who work in the woods, but with this new website the agency could soon have more than 400,000 researchers providing valuable data.

“There are more than 400,000 deer hunters out in the woods every year who could be providing information about what they’re seeing in the woods,” DNR research scientist Adam Landon says.

Deer hunters can log in to https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/mammals/deer/management/hunter-field-log.html to participate in the project.
