The Minnesota firearms deer season is underway and the weather is unbelievably mild. Hunters have been sitting in stands or blinds in shirt sleeves during the height of the day. Preliminary report show it’s been a good season for many hunters. The mild weather may be a hindrance as much as a help, there are plenty of theories on that.
Meanwhile, some of the die-hard anglers have taken advantage of the exceptionally mild weather too, and the reports have been good. Word is large walleye and smallmouth are very aggressive right now. jigging with a minnow will do the trick.
In International Falls, the next big event will be the “Twas the Lights before Christmas parade the day after Thanksgiving. The Chamber of Commerce has set up horse-drawn wagon rides in the downtown from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm that Friday. Santa and Mrs. Clause will also be on hand, they will be serving hot chocolate and cookies following the parade. That will be at the Centennial Park. If you’re not familiar with International Falls, the park is located at the intersection of Third Street and Third Avenue.
