Hunters planning on hunting need to sign up for a firearms safety hunter education class now. That's what the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is telling hunters across the gopher state.

Last year was a good year for Minnesota pheasant hunters according to state wildlife officials. Minnesota Department of Natural Resources officials say that favorable weather helped make 2005 one of the best pheasant hunting seasons in 40 years.
