Local conservation wardens remind archers to secure their tree stands before taking to forests and fields in Door and Kewaunee Counties. The archery and crossbow season opened September 15 and runs through January 6th. Chris Kratcha, a DNR Conservation Warden in Sturgeon Bay, says inspect your tree stand gear before you go into the tree.
Kratcha says archers need to follow the same rule used by firearms hunters. That’s knowing what lies beyond their target before firing.
