FERGUS FALLS, Minn. (AP) — Bemidji has been chosen to host next year's Minnesota Governor's Deer Hunting Opener.

Gov. Mark Dayton made the announcement in Fergus Fall on Friday as part of the 11th annual festivities ahead of the state's firearms deer opener, which falls on Saturday this year.

Dennelle Hilliard, executive director of Bemidji's tourism bureau, says they have a great public land base and wonderful natural resources for people to enjoy.
