MILWAUKEE -- The countdown to gun deer hunting season has begun.   

Before bucks are bagged on Saturday, heads up on a new rule.

For the first time this year, you will no longer register your kill by paper. 

Instead, there's three ways to do this: Online through the DNR website:

Through the DNR's "Pocket Ranger" app, or calling 844-GAME-REG

Chad Nicpon believes this will help his family save a lot of time.

"By the end of the week were pretty tired and want to get going home and to be able to do it online would be very convenient," said Chad Nicpon, Hunter.

You can still register your deer at area stores including gas stations. As a reminder, gun deer hunting season starts Saturday morning, just before sunrise.
