Hunters warned about unexploded bombs at Fort McCoy

SPARTA, WI (WTAQ) - If you hunt at Fort McCoy this fall, you'll have to watch out for things that hunters elsewhere never worry about -- unexploded bombs. 

Fort safety manager Randy Eddy says people often find unexploded ordnance that's been buried for years. It often rises to the surface every spring, during construction or at times when the ground is soft.

Eddy says hunters to spot unexploded bombs should leave them alone, leave the area, mark the spot if possible, and report the ordnance to Fort McCoy's public safety center. 

The fort covers a large amount of woodlands between Sparta and Tomah.
