Economy Slows Down Hunting Season

Deer hunting season is now underway in Maryland and Pennsylvania. In West Virginia, it started last week, and if their numbers so far are any indication, the economy is going to be a friend to deer this year.

Rick Vincent shot a four-point buck at the Sleepy Creek hunting area. He’s got plans for it.

“Make slim jims, deer jerky and stuff like that,” says Vincent.

“Eat them,” says Gary Silver, a hunter. “We cut them into steaks, cut tenderloins, butterfly them and everything.”

Hunters checking in at Shanghai Grocery said this year deer are headed for the dinner table. They’re not shooting for recreation.

“I love when the season comes in, that saves on the grocery bill,” says Silver.

Local checkpoints say it’s been a quieter hunting season so far than in years past. They’re seeing less hunters shooting for sport.
