16mgdo_emailsigBack in August of 2015 the Pequot Lakes Chamber and Breezy Point Resort received word that they were selected to be the host of the 2016 Minnesota Governor’s Deer Hunting Opener. And ever since, we’ve been preparing and planning for this unique event! And here’s a little known fact… now in it’s 14th year, we played host to the very FIRST Governor’s Deer Hunting Opener in 2002. Once again, we’ll welcome Minnesota’s Governor, the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, and Explore Minnesota Tourism to the Brainerd Lakes area!

Join us November 3rd – 5th as we educate youth, promote ethical hunting practices, share the economical and environmental benefits of hunting, and honor this annual tradition.  < Event Info & Schedule >
