Youth hunt teaches life-long lessons

Two young hunters had the opportunity to participate in the Wisconsin Youth Deer Hunt in Kewaunee County this past weekend and they did not disappoint.  Thirteen-year-old Trent Rueckl and 12-year-old Ethan Engum hunted with their grandfather, Dave Rueckl on family land in Stangleville and each successfully bagged a deer.  Rueckl says that the youth hunt is a great way for him to connect with his grandchildren in the outdoors while teaching them valuable lessons about hunting and when to take a shot at a deer.



Rueckl says the rewarding experience began goes back to the hunter safety courses that were taken and the sighting in of their rifles on the shooting range prior to hunting.  The youth hunt is open to boys and girls 15 years old or younger, who must be accompanied by a mentor 18 years of age or older.  According to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources website, as of October 5, 157 deer have been harvest in Door County this year, and 97 from Kewaunee County.  Statewide, 10,987 deer have been harvested with 4,678 taken by archers.
