Savannah River Site deer hunts canceled due to government shutdown

Posted: Updated:

The 2013 Savannah River Site Deer Hunts have been canceled due to the government shutdown.

The hunts were scheduled for Oct. 26 through Dec. 7, but thanks to a lack in federal appropriations, the events will be defunded.

The cancellation includes the Wounded Warrior and Mobility-Impaired Hunts held annually at the Savannah River Site, scheduled for Nov. 1 through 2.

Officials say deer hunt fees already received will be refunded.
