UPDATE: Gov. Walker doesn't see any deer

UPDATED Monday, November 25, 2013 --- 12:40 p.m.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker's deer hunt has come up empty.

Walker went hunting in Washington County on Monday. He posted a tweet shortly before noon saying quote "Wow is it cold out. The deer must think the same thing as I haven't seen a thing." The tweet included a photograph of the governor standing in front of a tree in a blaze orange coat, cap and face mask.

His spokesman sent an email to The Associated Press a few minutes after noon saying Walker had finished his hunt without getting a deer.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker says he plans to participate in Wisconsin's nine-day gun deer hunt.

Walker released a statement Friday saying he will join hunters from around the world in heading to the Wisconsin woods. His quote: "Like riding my Harley and watching the Packers, going hunting is one of my favorite Wisconsin traditions."

The season opens Saturday. Walker's statement didn't say when he would take to the woods or where he might be going. His spokesman, Tom Evenson, said the governor plans to hunt on Monday with friends in Washington County.
