Fall hunting season off to a wet start

By Bill Bartusek Jr., Outdoors Columnist

The past weekend was the real beginning of the fall hunting season.

Seasons began for squirrel, rabbit, grouse and bow hunting for deer. I didn't participate in any of the hunts but I sure wonder how things went.

The weather for the weekend was ideal for ducks, as rain came down both Saturday and Sunday over most of the state. Bow hunting is usually difficult early because of all the cover and crops in the fields. However, deer are a bit easier to pattern as they are in their summer movements unhampered by harvest and man.
