Whitetails Unlimited look to engage youth

Sturgeon Bay-based Whitetails Unlimited is not concerned about the lower than expected deer harvest from this year's opening weekend. Hunters registered over 90,000 deer last weekend, down almost 25 percent from the previous year. The DNR blames the late rut for the lack of movement in the woods. It comes at a time when kids are opting for the instant gratification of video games and smartphones indoors rather than heading outside for sports and other recreational activities. Whitetails Unlimited Program Services Director Russ Austad credits youth programs with introducing kids to shooting sports, which hopefully leads them to hunting.

Austad says Whitetails Unlimited is also working just as hard to retain current hunters and reactivate those that may have given the activity up.
