Gun season is finally here

November 14, 2012

The weekend that many hunters look forward to all year is here. Deer gun season starts Saturday and runs for 16 days. There will be deer camps all over the state with family and friends enjoying good times and good food along with some hunting.
I have been hunting since I was about 8 years old, and I always love the time I get to spend at camp with my family and friends. The food is always better, and the memories last a lifetime. If you get a chance, make some memories of your own this year at deer camp.
