Hunters and hunting: It’s all good

Preliminary opening weekend numbers: Deer harvest up statewide | WLUK

From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

In 2020, 876,000 people took part in deer hunting in the state, according to the Department of Natural Resources.

That compares to about 860,000 people in the seats during regular-season games at Lambeau Field, 840,000 attendees at State Fair in West Allis and 409,000 at the music festival in Milwaukee, said Eric Lobner, DNR director of wildlife.

“None of those numbers are anything to sneeze at,” Lobner said in a Nov. 3 media briefing.

The 2021 season runs Saturday through Nov. 28.

I’m not a hunter, but I’m a staunch supporter.

Columnist, author, and ordained minister Doug Giles IS a hunter. Here’s a photo of a brown bear he shot in Alaska in 2010.

Giles, a favorite of mine, doesn’t write as much as he used to. But when Giles did, hunting was a topic, interesting with a capital “I.”

Here are a FEW examples just in time for the WI deer hunt. Trust me. Read and you will love Doug Giles:
