Deer Hunt Wisconsin 2013 is the 22nd annual hour-long special designed to help hunters prepare for the upcoming Wisconsin firearms deer season. Host Dan Small will interview 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.
The show will feature several women hunters, including 10-year-old Brooklyn Strang, who shot her first deer during Wisconsin’s youth hunt in October, and Wisconsin DNR Secretary Cathy Stepp, who tells the story of her first buck and announces that 30% of new deer hunters are women. 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, hear stories of other successful hunts from several young hunters who bagged deer during the October Youth Hunt and learn how to train a dog to find shed antlers and help recover wounded deer.
