LA CROSSE, WI (WKBT) - Wisconsin hunter's bundled up to take part in the gun deer hunting opening day.
Hunters started the 9-day hunt early this morning in hopes of tagging a buck early.
According to the Department of Natural Resources, more than 600,000 hunters bought gun licenses this year.
All hunters must tag and register any deer they shoot with the Wisconsin DNR.
And despite the cold weather one hunter did have luck, shooting his first deer.
"It was really fun. I was really excited when I got it. I wounded it and it ran away so I wasn't sure if I got it but I was happy that I did," said hunter Ethan Hundt.
