People usually enjoy bird hunting this time of year. But some of you are having a hard time finding ammunition. 

"It just kind of breaks your heart, that you can't supply people with the ammo they need," shared Pat Kukull, from Superior Shooters Supply.

She credits a few reasons, including panic buying from last year, higher demand with more new hunters, and a manufacturer being down for about a year.

Plus, more people are buying online these days. "In the world of business, they're seeing a chance to make more money. I can't blame them. But it does interrupt the supply chain for dealers like us," Kukull said.

Kukull estimates she's received about five cases in the past few weeks and she usually has twice or triple that amount.

She suggests calling the store to find out if any came in. 715-394-4982
