Hunter Wrap up
Though temperatures plummeted and winds blew for the first half of the season, hunters rose to the occasion and headed out to enjoy the traditions of the nine-day deer hunt.
Of the 633, 602 gun deer license buyers, Wisconsin welcomed nearly 27,000 new resident hunters to the field based on the number of people who took advantage of discounted licenses for first-time-hunters.
“This year, the traditions of the nine-day were shared with a large cohort of new hunters. I want to thank all the seasoned hunters who encouraged someone new to join in the traditions of their hunt this year, and for those new hunters who took advantage of the opportunity to try hunting,” DNR Sec. Cathy Stepp. “I am especially excited to see such a representation of new female hunters.
This year females represented 33 percent of resident adult First Time Gun Deer license buyers and 33 percent of resident First Time Junior Gun Deer license buyers. The number of female hunters aged 10 to 30 increased by 10 percent this year and overall, females made up 10 percent of all deer license sales, going into opening weekend.
The cheese melts down
during Rodger-less stretch
By Jeff Hovind
I didn’t watch any football on Thanksgiving, just the Packers. Technically, that was supposed be a professional football game, but it turned into a glorified scrimmage for the Detroit Lions.
In real football, blockers block, the defense tackles, and a millionaire quarterback throws the ball to a millionaire receiver, who’s expected to catch it, and run with it. None of that happened for the Green & Gold, who, as of late have been casting a stockyard stench over Titletown,
Now I can see the offense faltering a bit without Aaron “the Franchise” Rodgers, but since Rodgers went down early in the Bear game, the entire team melted like so much mozzarella on a pizza in the oven.
Is this what Rodger-less life will be like? In Brett Favre and “the Franchise,” Packer Nation has been gifted with out-of-this world quarterback play and health. We got used to it; maybe even took it for granted. So the football gods sent us a wakeup call in the form of a slap in the face.
