Wisconsin gun-deer season comes to an end

Posted: Updated:

It's the final weekend of Wisconsin's gun-deer season, as the nine day hunt ended Sunday at sundown.

After a lackluster opening weekend, the Department of Natural Resources is hoping for a strong finish. Hunters killed nearly 1,400 fewer deer last weekend than during opening weekend in 2016.

Despite the slow start, many meat processors say they're keeping busy.  Final deer counts likely won't be available for a few more days.
