A lot of folks were up bright and early Monday morning to head into the woods for the first day gun buck season. Local hunting stores were busy even before sunrise, serving up breakfast and helping hunters find their last bit of goods before they went off.
Jerry's Sporting Goods store employees told me they had crowds right when the doors opened at 6 a.m. The store was recently bought by new owners and some changes had been made leading up to this hunting season. Cooks were waiting in the newly renovated restaurant to feed the men and women coming in before they went into the woods.
All throughout the day, there was a steady stream of shoppers and hunters coming in to tag their deer.
A lot of hunters said that the day started out a little slow but they ended up seeing, and getting, some bucks.
As of Monday evening, we haven't heard of any reports of hunting accidents in our area. DNR officers still say that you need to be careful when you're getting to and from your spot to hunt.
They encourage you to remember all safety rules and be careful unloading your weapons. You should also make sure you secure your tree stand so no accidents happen.
DNR officers are out in full force. If you have any questions, make sure you check out the rules before you head back into the woods.
