Delayed harvest causes deer hunting safety concerns
Standing corn is a safety concern this firearms deer hunting season, according to Department of Natural Resources Capt. Mike Hammer.
"The cool summer and wet fall has delayed the corn harvest in many parts of the state," noted Hammer, the DNR Enforcement Division's Education Program coordinator. "That harvest delay could create hunter safety issues during deer drives when the firearms deer season kicks off on Nov. 7."
