Hunting season begins


The countdown is done and the hunt has begun. Hunters of all ages were out on the first day of the season, including Reuben Christiansen, 14.

"This will be my third year hunting and I got a six pointer," said Christiansen.

When he went to hunt, he had his eye on the prize.

"I saw a doe and two fawns walk past and I just waited for a little bit, and this walked out and I guess I just started shooting."

He was in luck and he caught his very first buck.

"I was pretty excited I was shaking a little bit but you gotta just take a deep breath and shot," said Christiansen. 

"Probably take it to Country Fresh and have them I don't know, make jerky and venison out of it and stuff," he said.

He's not the only one. Country Fresh Meats are known to collect deer during the season.

"Everyone likes their own thing so it's kind of an individual process that we go through with the hunter," said owner Mia Bayer.

Owners say the season is also their busiest time, and that hunters come back for more every year.

"I think we have a pretty good customer base and they're pretty happy, we try to make a high quality product for them," said Bayer.

As for Christiansen and his dad, they're looking forward to the rest of the season. They'll be out again.

"There are bigger ones out there," said Christiansen.

Hoping that first prize buck isn't his last.
