Deer season begins Saturday

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The first day of deer season is Saturday.

Workers at Backwoods Outdoors says the aisles have been hopping with customers.

They're coming in to get some last minute items. Folks are buying everything from stands to corn.

Workers also encourage everyone to be safe, and get their firearms checked out ahead of time.

"We've been seeing a lot of people coming through and passing through, stopping and getting their corn or their last minute things for the big weekend," said Shane Lee with Backwoods Outdoors.

They said more young people are getting involved in the outdoors, and they're seeing more families hunting together.
