The second weekend of the firearms deer season is here. The DNR’s David Trauba says scouting your hunting site ahead of time can help make for a successful hunt.

“Deer hunting is a great way to connect to the outdoors regardless of where you live or how much experience you have. Making a plan will only add to your outdoor experience and success to bring quality meat to the table.”

Trauba is also encouraging hunters to test their deer for Chronic Wasting Disease in areas where surveillance testing is taking place.
