Hunting season has begun, and officials are already bracing for the usual problems that pop up.

 

Deschutes County Sheriff Larry Blanton says there are some basic and sensible rules to follow:  "Almost every year we have an accidental shooting of some kind during hunting season. Primarily on opening weekends. Just be careful, do not have a loaded gun in an ATV or in a vehicle, of course. So not shoot from a moving vehicle, make sure of your targets."

 

Also, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has a new program that provides some deer and elk tags to active military members on leave.

 

The temporary rule authorized 20 controlled deer and 20 controlled elk tags available on a first come basis.
