UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News) -- It was a chilly start of the firearm deer season in Wisconsin yesterday, prompting one state official to say "even the squirrels were hunkered down today".

A spokesperson for the Department of Natural Resources says some parts of the state experienced a chilly five degrees and winds gusting over 30 miles per hour, providing an added challenge to the start of the season.

Despite the conditions, D-N-R says many hunters braved the added elements and were able to bag a buck. Photos and stories have been posting on the department's Facebook page. One hunter reported a nine-point buck kill just five minutes into the opening season.
