Central Wisconsin Gun Deer Sightings Vary

Submitted by Corey Graff, Online Editor

Following the close of the 2008 Wisconsin gun deer season, the big news being reported
is the steep decline in deer sightings and a drop in harvest from last year of 25
percent or more at some registration stations. While many hunters saw less deer, some
actually saw more this year. Such was the case for me, although I suspect it had more
to do with the very cold temperatures and hunters moving deer around as they mosey
about to get warm. Only two bucks were spotted within pistol range from my little
blind and one of them — a little six-point buck — posed for the photo below.

What did you see?
