DNR says that this should be a good season for deer. Unlike last year, they’re not having issues with parasites wiping out 30% of the deer population.
The Indiana Department of Natural Resources says deer should be abundant for the state’s firearms deer season, which begins Saturday.
I have never been deer hunting in Indiana, although every time around this year I think to myself: “Self, I should go deer hunting this year”. But then my wife points out to me that I’m not doing it for the hunt, but rather for the challenge it presents me as a marksman. Invariably, I never end up going hunting, for a myriad of reasons – although admittedly this year I can’t use the excuse that “I don’t have a good gun for deer”.
Best of luck to the hunters heading out this weekend – I hope you get your deer!
