DNR says fewer hunters took to the woods during deer hunt
Officials with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources gave another possible reason Tuesday for the 20 percent decline in the deer harvest during the recent nine-day gun season.
Game wardens said hunters only spent 3 to 4 hours in the woods at a time and more of them may have only hunted a few of the nine days.
The wardens' report said hunting dropped off on the Sunday of the opening weekend, and it didn't pick up for the rest of the season.
