|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.
