Stuart Bensen (left) of Erskine, Minn., and Brett Wojack of Big Lake, Minn., walk down the trail after spending the morning in the comfort of Bensen's heated deer stand on his property near Erskine. Bensen, spending his first deer season as a retired conservation officer, was helping Wojack try to shoot a deer. The young hunter had three deer in shooting range Saturday morning, but was unable to fire off a shot because of an issue with the scope on his rifle. Grand Forks Herald photo by Brad Dokken.
