In many parts of the country....as here in Tennessee...deer season opened this past week. I could see two hunters from my
backyard. It wasn't long after they called it quits about mid morning that a buck walked through my garden. I've watched the deer the
past two weeks and at times one buck would be chasing another. Must be defending their harems.
Saw in the news this morning a report on three "hunters" in Wisconsin who really should rethink their skills and gun safety.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Three hunters shot and wounded themselves on the opening day of Wisconsin's gun deer season.
Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Recreational Safety Warden Mark Little says the first happened in Brown County about 5:30 a.m. Saturday. A 49-year-old man was working on his firearm when it discharged into his right ankle.
The second happened after 9 a.m. in Forest County. A 49-year-old Crandon man was sitting in the cab of his truck when he saw a deer. When the hunter went to move his rifle, it went off, sending a bullet through his legs and then the truck's seat and door.
WSAW-TV reports the third incident happened in Shawano County. A 51-year-old man bent over and his holstered handgun fired, hitting his leg.
