City Will Try Again on Hixon Deer Hunt
They'll give it another try this year. A special deer hunt in La Crosse's Hixon Forest. Last year's December hunt was called off after a blizzard storm dumped more than a foot of snow in the area on precisely the same week-end that the hunt was to be held. The need for the hunt in Hixon is definitely still there, says city recreation supervisor, Jay Odegaard
Odegaard hopes that a group of 17 special needs hunters will be able to nab around forty deer. The Hixon hunt will be held December 10th and 11th and the forest will be closed during that time.
