Deer Hunting Season 01 Nov 12

The countdown is on to this week’s firearms deer hunting opener. The DNR’s Lou Cornicelli says while the deer population is up from last year, there are fewer places where hunters can take two or more deer. He says there were also a limited number of anterless deer permits granted. The reason: to help re-build or maintain the deer herd in certain portions of the state by managing the harvest. But in the end, Cornicelli says “the bottom line is we are setting ourselves up for a pretty good deer season.”
