With thousands of avid outdoorsmen and women venturing out to their favorite hunting spot, with high hopes and huge dreams of taking that trophy buck that you've been watching or dreaming of just may come true this season.

Let's all remember to be safe and wear the hunters orange that's required by law to stay safe.
