From the Wisconsin State Journal:

_Even before he got back from Iraq, Sgt. Kevin Johnson had deer hunting on his mind. So Johnson… wrote Wisconsin lawmakers with an idea: Establish a special deer season for the thousands of returning soldiers who missed the chance to hunt this fall… .

This week, legislation was introduced that could grant Johnson his wish. It would create an additional gun deer season from Feb. 4 through Feb. 7 for Wisconsin residents who were out of state serving on active duty in the U.S. armed forces or National Guard during the regular season Nov. 21-29.
