Hunters will finally get to head into the woods with their guns Saturday when deer hunting season opens. Archers have had their crack getting their trophy buck since their season opener back in late September. Saturday marked the first day of a new state law removing the minimum age for youth participating in mentored hunts. Other changes to the gun deer hunting season provided popular discussion points during Friday’s Ask the Warden show on 104.1 WRLU with DNR Warden Chris Kratcha answering questions on the phone and Facebook Live. The popular Busch Beers Deer Hunters Round-Up will also start tonight at Valmy Happy Hour beginning at 6:30 p.m. The show this year is sponsored by Flanigan Distributing, Smokey Ridge Taxidermy, Door County Custome Meats, Virlee Gunworks, and Konop Meats. The gun deer hunting season runs through November 26.
