DNR officials say opening weekend a good one
By RiverTown Staff
Good weather across the state along with a fairly early opening made for what Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources officials describe as a generally successful start to the annual gun-deer hunt.
DNR figures show that hunters registered a preliminary tally of 171,584 deer over the first two days of the 2007 gun-deer hunting season. This compares to an opening weekend preliminary count of 167,573 in 2006.
