Wisconsin's deer season doesn't start for another week and a half, but state wildlife officials remind hunters to play it safe.

The Department of Natural Resources says hunters should treat every firearm like it's loaded and always point the muzzle in a safe direction.

Wisconsin has seen four gun seasons with no deaths since 1972.
