Wisconsin Deer Hunting season brings business to Superior stores
The Wisconsin deer hunting opener overlaps with the wrap-up of Minnesota’s rifle hunting season for deer. Several hunting supplies stores gave helpful tips for making the most out of their hunting season.
Scott Miller, an employee from Northwest Outlet, said wearing layers and having wool socks does wonders on a hunting trip.
“We’ve got this one weekend of overlap where there’s guys still hunting in Minnesota and everybody’s getting out and starting in Wisconsin. Wisconsin hunters are hit it a little bit harder because they only have one week to to get their gear,” Miller said. “But you know, hopefully everybody goes out and is successful and then safe.”
While many folks have been thankful for the lack of snow, it’s a bit harder to track deer while hunting. Pat Kukull, the co-owner of Superior Shooters Supply advised young hunters to have patience during the Wisconsin Deer Hunting season.
“We had the big rush for Minnesota. We do have a rush for Wisconsin,” Kukull said. “It’s not like years before, because you can buy your license at home online. And that makes a big difference. And I like to think that our customers are really prepared. They’re sighting their gun in early.”
