This year’s show will feature segments on important research on buck mortality, fawn recruitment and the social side of deer management, as well as the importance of passing along the hunting tradition to the next generation and recruiting new hunters.
Other topics include hunter safety and the new ATV/UTV laws; a ride-along with a conservation warden; the link between forest management and deer management; the season forecast; hunting tips, recipes and a campfire conversation between DNR Secretary Cathy Stepp and others as they share their first-deer stories and encourage seasoned hunters to share their traditions and the thrill of the harvest with new hunters.
