Shotgun deer hunting season in Marion County begins tomorrow. Marion County Sheriff Ron Goemaat reminds hunters to take precautions as they head out early Saturday morning. Among the key safety measures is to wear plenty of blaze orange and to know where members of your hunting party are. Goemaat explains that it’s easy to get tunnel vision when you spot a deer, but realizing someone in orange is behind the deer and pulling up on a shot could possibly save a life.
