For many women in the the Northland and across the country Deer Hunting Season does not necessarily mean that they are going to be staying home.

A term that was commonly used this time of year was deer hunter widows weekend, which some ladies celebrate, others decide to head out themselves and retailers are taking notice.

Every year the number of women heading out in the woods has increased steadily and according to some local hunting specialty stores in the Twin Ports they do carry clothing and guns to fit the needs of female hunters. And for hunters in general you have quite the variety of places to shop with 5 stores in the immediate area.

Being someone who does not even like to put a worm on a hook I say bravo ladies, be safe out there and I hope you bag that thirty point buck!
