First thing that needs to be done in Minnesota is take the damn politicians out of game management. All they are doing is micro-managing the DNR and catering to large campaign contributors desires. Leave itto the DNR and good science.
I think the bow hunters should share the last 10-14 days of October with the muzzle loaders before the deer get thinned out by the 450,000 rifle hunters. After rifle season the deer have pretty much gone nocturnal and 185,000 are missing. A lot of the large bucks are taken also because the bow hunter and the rifle hunter get to hunt during the peak of the rut. Presently ML hunter don't get that privilege.
This could possibly be done on a bi-annual basis.
If you have time to do it twice, then you have time to do it once right and put your name on it
