Firearm Deer Hunting season is officially underway and runs thru this weekend. The state Department of Natural Resources is urging hunters to make safety a priority. The leading cause of hunting accidents is hunters falling out of tree stands, so it’s recommended that hunters use a fall arrest system safety harness. I-DNR spokesperson Ed Cross also has this advice.
The first weekend season runs thru a half hour after sunset on Sunday. The second firearm deer hunting season is November 30th thru December 3rd.
