The ammunition shortage has been affecting hunters and gun enthusiasts around the country since early in 2020. And with deer season getting underway in many parts of the country, the shortage is especially causing a headache for many hunters.
Wisconsin’s eight-deer deer gun season got underway on November 20, and the shortage has left many hunters in the Badger State “feeling ill-equipped,” for the second year in a row, according to the Associated Press.
Randy and Tiffani Rogness, owners of Paddock Lake Sporting Goods in Salem, said they had empty store shelves as of last Friday—and when new supply arrives, it tends to only last two or three hours, despite customers being limited to one box each.
In addition, Minnesota-based Vista Outdoor says that it’s “ramping production ahead of schedule at its Remington facility to meet unprecedented demand.”
