Second Week of Deer Camp Song

We all have fond memories of our early days of deer hunting. For thousands of Upper Midwest deer hunters, one of them would be this classic deer hunting song from the 1980s: “The Second Week of Deer Camp” by Da Yoopers.

As kids in deer camp, we remember this song being played every morning on local radio stations before the hunt. It was a rite of passage that is even celebrated today in some places of Wisconsin, Michigan and Minnesota.

What are your favorite memories from your early days of deer camp?
