MILWAUKEE – Wisconsin kicked off its 170th deer gun season and for the second straight year some hunters were feeling ill-equipped. A nationwide ammunition shortage due to the supply chain issues affecting other products has left hunters searching far and wide for ammo in the first place and then shelling out more money if they do find it. One of the nation’s biggest ammunition manufacturers, Vista Outdoor in Anoka, Minnesota, said it’s “ramping up production ahead of schedule at its Remington facility to meet unprecedented demand.” The 2021 deer gun hunting season runs through next Sunday.
