Who do you think should have kept the deer?
Wisconsin’s deer season opened with a bang, but one 11-year-old hunter will not be going home with the nine-point buck he shot. According to the Associated Press, DJ Jorgenson was hunting with his son, Kameron, near the town of Oneida, Wisconsin when the boy shot and wounded the buck. The deer then ran off into private property, where another hunter managed to finish it off.
“We could see that the other landowner on his land, and we got up as far as the fence line. He came down and met us by the fence post,” Jorgenson told WLUK-TV.
The landowner, Randy Heyrman, indicated that Jorgenson’s intial shot only wounded the deer in the leg and said it took an additional two shots to put the animal down. The hunters met at the edge of Heyrman’s property to discuss who would get the buck.
