DNR Secretary bags first deer

MUSCODA - Her first deer hunt was a successful one for DNR Secretary Cathy Stepp. Just two hours into opening day, Stepp had bagged her first deer.

The secretary tells Wisconsin Public Radio she had thought she would be happy just sitting in the quiet of the woods of Iowa County, when a doe walked right in front of her.

Stepp says she had never hunted before, but she calls it "just really an amazing experience and quite an adrenaline rush." She points out that more women are getting involved in deer hunting these days.
