Savannah River Site reinstates deer hunts

The Savannah River Site is re-instating this year's deer hunts.

The 2013 Wounded Warrior and Mobility-Impaired Hunts are now scheduled for Dec. 6 and 7, and the primary hunts are scheduled for Dec. 20 and 21.

The hunts were canceled earlier this month due to the government shutdown.

Officials say the hunts will continue to use a method that involves trained dogs to safely flush out deer and move them toward waiting hunters and safety auditors.
