Deer Harvest Is Down 08 Nov 12

As projected, it’s looking like this year’s deer harvest is going to be down from last year. The DNR’s Lou Cornicelli says last year around 192-thousand deer were taken. This year, it’s expected around 180-thousand deer will be harvested. He says it’s lower then what we have seen in the last decade, but still above the average over the last 30 or 40 years. He says last weekend the buck harvest was up eight-and-a-half-percent over last year and the doe harvest was down 20-percent.
