SPECIAL REPORT: Changing hunting traditions


Gun-deer hunting as we know it today is changing. This is the last year that hunters are required to bring their deer to a registration station. Starting next year there is a new option offered of registering your deer with a phone call, or checking it in online.

Registration stations also double as a place for hunters to congratulate each other and show off their prized buck, it holds that human aspect.

Is that tradition one of the past? Now, the bragging platform is boosted by thousands of people by simply posting a picture of your buck on social media. Can an amount of likes be equivalent to a real life pat on the back?

Join Newsline 9 Wednesday at 10 p.m. as we take a look at the possibility of the changing tradition of hunting.
