Jason Vee of Lake Nebagamon shot the buck pictured above on Sunday afternoon during Wisconsin’s muzzleloader deer season. Jason Vee is wearing the blaze-orange clothing. With him is his brother, Jamie Vee of Iron River. I had the pleasure of spending opening day of Wisconsin’s firearms deer season this fall. The family gathered at the Brule River cabin of Scott Vee on Friday evening before the hunt.
In an e-mail that Jason Vee sent with the photo, he said, “(It) feels pretty good to get one. I questioned my sanity running bait out this weekend in 2 feet of snow at 21 below.”
Jason, Jamie and friend Bill Harvey trailed the buck all morning on Monday before Harvey found it.
