Tweet this: No, you can't use Twitter to help take a whitetail beginning Saturday, when the state's 2009 firearms deer season begins. Nor can you text your buddies, saying, for example, that the deer of a lifetime is ambling their way and that they should GET READY.
Minnesota law has long prohibited the taking of game by hunters with the use of two-way radios and, more recently, cell phones.

Hunting begins throughout most of Minnesota one-half hour before sunrise Saturday.
High temperatures in northern Minnesota beneath sunny to partly sunny skies should be in the 40s and 50s, with west winds. Highs in the 60s are expected in parts of the south, also with sun and west winds, shifting to northwest.
