ABRAMS (WLUK) -- Deer Hunt 2017 is just about a week away, and an upcoming project in Oconto County is designed to make it easier for hunters to enjoy the sport.

The wireless company Cellcom, awarded the Wisconsin Waterfowl Association a $2,500 Green Gift, which it will use to build two new handicap-accessible deer hunting blinds at its 152-acre site near Abrams.

The new shelters will bring the number of deer hunting and duck blinds on the site to eight. Open windows should provide a wide-angle view of the area.

"They literally can roll out of their vehicle, roll out, roll down one of the half mile sections of trail either off 41, or Oak Orchard Road, and be able to enjoy the outdoor resources that so many of us take for granted," said Don Kirby, Wisconsin Waterfowl Association Executive Director.

The project is expected to be completed in the Spring.
