The only good deer hunt is a safe one

By Kurt Krueger

AS THE GRANDEST single sporting event in Wisconsin history gets under way this Saturday, Nov. 17, it is hoped that hunters will be as safe as a year ago, when only seven people were injured — one of the safest gun deer seasons on record.

That’s an awesome safety record when you consider there are nearly 620,000 orange-clad hunters going afield on opening day, or at any time during the nine-day hunt.

Blaze-orange clothing and mandatory hunter safety certification, as promoted by the Depart­ment of Natural Resources (DNR), get the lion’s share of the credit.
