Hunting seasons are off to mixed start

By Bill Bartusek

The Labor Day weekend was good one for hunters as well as Lake goers. The weekend marked the start of the bear season and early goose seasons.

Early reports show mixed results for both species. Going in, it looked good for bear hunters, but it turned out be just average. The Bears are getting a bumper crop of acorns and that slowed activity at the bait stations. So hunting success was very spotty.

The first day of goose season was excellent, but the geese learned quickly to avoid hunters and things have slowed down considerably.
