(WEAU) – While gun deer season just came to an end on Sunday, a new hunting season kicked off Monday.

The 10-day muzzleloader hunt began Monday morning and runs through December 7th.

Ed Culhane with the DNR says just 6,000 deer were registered during the season last year.

He says while it is not as popular as the gun deer season, it has its followers who enjoy the unique experience of muzzleloading.

Following the muzzleloader hunt is a four-day antlerless deer hunt running December 8th through the 11th statewide, except in state parks and Menominee County.
