Cheeseheads are getting smarter

On the one hand, I’m impressed somebody keeps track of this statistic. Maybe impressed is the wrong word. Mystified?

Whatever the case I am happy to report the latest breaking news out of the land of cheese is…

Wisconsin deer hunters shot at fewer buildings

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A state report says deer hunters shot dramatically fewer buildings during Wisconsin’s November gun hunt.

A Department of Natural Resources report says hunters shot 10 buildings. That’s down from 25 in 2008, 19 in 2007 and 15 in 2006.

The report describes the buildings as homes and barns. It says more rural residential development has put more buildings on the landscape.

Authorities determined the identity of the shooter in five of the incidents. Four of the shootings involved a rifle and another four a shotgun. The weapon in the remaining two incidents was unknown.
