Youth Deer Hunt successful

The Youth Deer Hunt held last weekend was a big success in Door and Kewaunee counties.  Chris Kratcha, the DNR conservation warden stationed in Sturgeon Bay, says hunters 15 years of age and younger again were eligible to hunt deer the first weekend of October statewide as long as they were chaperoned by a mentor.  He says it is a great way to introduce young people to the popular sport.



Kratcha says the hunt locally makes up about only two percent of the total deer harvested annually in the area.  This year about 100 total deer were taken in Door County.  Kewaunee County had about 95 deer registered last weekend.
