MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) -- Opening day of deer hunting season started with a bang Friday morning and brought hundreds of hunters to state game areas in West Michigan.
However, some spots in Muskegon County were slower than usual, because of concerns about a deer disease from last year.
It's that time of year, when the woods become a playground for thrills and adventure. For fathers and sons like Matthew and Mark Booher, it's something special to share.
One of them gets to feel young again. "I'm still a kid you know," says Mark Booher as he laughs. The other is proud to be all grown up. "Looked up and all of a sudden said, 'Oh shoot-- a buck!' and pulled my gun out and shot him real quick," says Matthew Booher.
"This was his second deer killed, two years in a row," says Mark.
