MADISON - Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Department of Natural Resources Sec. Cathy Stepp join hundreds of thousands of Wisconsin deer hunters in the excitement and traditions of the nine-day deer season.
Before heading out to the field, the governor and secretary are reminding all hunters that a safe hunt is a successful hunt, whether a deer is taken home or not.
Additionally, they thank hunters and their families for keeping Wisconsin's outdoor heritage strong, by including new hunters in the traditions of the nine-day season, and by sharing stories of the hunt with each other and with DNR.
Governor Walker and Sec. Stepp have released the following video to directly share their messages for the season with hunters and their families as the excitement builds for opening weekend of the nine-day gun deer season.
