Deer Hunt Wisconsin 2013 is the 22nd annual hour-long special designed to help hunters prepare for the upcoming firearms deer season. Host Dan Small will interview Department of Natural Resources Secretary Cathy Stepp and other DNR staff to discuss research on Wisconsin’s deer herd, efforts to recruit new hunters, the impact of deer on forest habitat, new regulations and a forecast for this year’s hunt.
Viewers will also learn how they can share photos and video of their hunts and connect with DNR via social media, get a look at new hunting gear, and hear stories of successful hunts from several young hunters who bagged deer during the October Youth Hunt.
