From Kenosha to Superior, the color of the season – blaze orange – is brightening the landscape. You might have seen it in recent days airing on clotheslines or staged in garages as hunters around Wisconsin make final preparations for the 2019 gun deer season. The state’s traditional nine-day firearm hunt opens Saturday and runs through Dec. 1. In many cases, whitetail hunters who’ve been wearing camouflage for the last two months during the bow seasons are breaking out the legally-required safety hues for the coming weeks. And in one instance, hunters gathered Tuesday evening at Whale-Tales Archery in Dousman to celebrate successes from earlier this fall and talk about their plans for the gun hunt. One buck in particular served as fodder for their dreams. Eric Spacek of Eagle brought the massive rack of a 13-point buck he shot Sept. 14 to the archery shop for an official scoring party thrown by the Whale-Tales staff. Avid hunters may not need fuel to add to their fire, but they typically don’t refuse it, either. About 40 people showed up Tuesday to see the antlers of a buck called “Young Guns” and hear Spacek tell his story.
