Where Hunting Happens, Conservation Happens™

Minnesota State Big Game Records

 Scattered among all those lakes are plenty of black bears and Canada moose


This may be the Land of 10,000 Lakes, but it doubles as the land of big whitetail bucks, some Canada moose, black bear and even a top five non-typical elk that died of pneumonia after it got its antlers stuck in the mud—true story! The big typical whitetail deer made the records many, many years ago. To be honest, the top black bear entries and that non-typical elk all happened in the 21st century. Nobody is saying the state is living in the past, but according to the records, Minnesota just isn’t producing record bucks these days.
