Hunt begins slowly
Deer hunting has been mostly slow during the first weekend of firearms season, several area registration stations reported Tuesday.
"It's spotty," said Gary Mittag, owner of Wadena Outfitters. "Either [hunters] haven't seen one or they're doing great."
Janice Tervo of Bluffton Oil said they've registered 235 deer as of mid-day Tuesday, around or a little behind the pace of last year, when they registered 485 over two weekends.
