An area conservation warden says hunters are doing good work in making Wisconsin’s firearms deer hunting season much safer. Only three non-fatal hunting accidents were recorded during the recent nine-day hunt. Chris Kratcha, a Department of Natural Resources warden in Sturgeon Bay, says hunters have adopted techniques that make for more effective and safe hunting.
The DNR also says mandatory hunter safety programs appear to be paying off in fewer injuries and fatalities.
