Outdoors with Lauren: Deer Shining

Posted:
WAUSAU (WAOW) -

Avid outdoorsman Mark Arndt can't wait for this years deer hunt, but we're still a few weeks from season, so we're out deer shining. Deer shining is driving on the roads in your car with no firearm, just a spot light to see how many you can find.

"It gets people out of the house. We could be sitting right now watching TV, but we're out enjoying nature and seeing the deer in their element. Plus, my daughter doesn't have that opportunity at this point," says Arndt.

Most outdoorsmen go deer shining in preparation for deer hunting season. But you don't have to be a hunter, it can also be a fun family activity.

At this time of night most 2 year olds are counting sheep, but little Tatum is out counting deer with her dad.

"It gets you used to seeing them. Some people might go out in the woods and see one deer in their whole life and... Oh there's one right there!"

Once we saw one there were always a few more.

"We'll keep doing this as long as she wants to, or till we get bored of it."

"Tonight went alright. We saw a count of about 22," said Arndt

We still had an hour until the cut off at 10 p.m. But it's a little past this two year olds bed time.
