MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Secretary Cathy Stepp has bagged a buck.
DNR officials say Stepp shot a seven-pointer on the opening afternoon of Wisconsin's traditional nine-day gun season Nov. 17. She killed the deer on Wisconsin Conservation Congress delegate Mark Noll's land near Alma in Buffalo County.
Stepp is now two-for-two since becoming DNR secretary. She killed a doe on opening morning last year in Iowa County. That adventure turned bloody for the secretary after she pressed her eye socket too tightly to her scope. The recoil drove the scope into her, gashing her skin.
DNR spokesman Bill Cosh says Stepp survived last week's outing with no injuries.
