Madison, Wisconsin - With fall nearly finished, the annual nine-day Wisconsin deer hunt ushers in the creation of new memories and excitement as hunters throughout the state take part in this time honored tradition.

This year's nine-day hunt has been a very safe one thus far, and hunters throughout Wisconsin have done an excellent job of learning new rules and regulations, according to Kevin Wallenfang, big game ecologist for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. Weather conditions have been highly variable across the state from fog to rain to freezing rain, with a great deal of hunters experiencing ideal hunting conditions, he said.
