Gun Deer Season Has Arrived

SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - Rifles are cleaned and oiled, everyone is wearing blaze orange and Wisconsin’s woods are filled with deer hunters.  The nine-day gun deer season kicked off at dawn today.  Some experts say scaling back the unpopular earn-a-buck program has excitement at a higher level today.  It will be totally gone next year.  That program required hunters to kill a doe before he or she could go after a trophy buck.  Hunters said the Department of Natural Resources was inflating its estimation of the state deer population and earn-a-buck forced them to bypass too many trophy bucks.  Many said the billion dollar a year sport was in jeopardy.  This year it doesn’t feel that way.  More than 600 thousand licenses were sold to hunters for this season.
