    MADISON, Wis. — Three hunters shot and wounded themselves on the opening day of Wisconsin’s gun deer season.

    Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Recreational Safety Warden Mark Little says the first happened in Brown County about 5:30 a.m. Saturday. A 49-year-old man was working on his firearm when it discharged into his right ankle.

    The second happened after 9 a.m. in Forest County. A 49-year-old Crandon man was sitting in the cab of his truck when he saw a deer. When the hunter went to move his rifle, it went off, sending a bullet through his legs and then the truck’s seat and door.

    The third incident happened in Shawano County. A 51-year-old man bent over and his holstered handgun fired, hitting his leg, according to WSAW-TV.

    The season runs through Sunday.
