Examples of How Technology is Changing Hunting

Over the decades, the ancient and controversial sport of hunting has drastically changed, especially in terms of the technology that is used.

The Badger State has had plenty of Boone & Crocket and Pope & Young deer taken being that it’s one of the highest harvesting states of those records every season. The nine-day gun deer season is about as big of a tradition as the holidays.  As the woods turn into blaze orange, businesses literally shut down, and the sight of seeing a hunter’s “trophy” in the back of the truck is just the daily norm.
