DNR Says Firearm Deer Season Harvest Down from Last Year

UNDATED (WHTC) -- The firearm deer season for 2013 in Michigan wrapped up last weekend and the DNR says that hunters faced a few challenges.  The DNR generates preliminary estimates for the deer harvest right after the season closes on November 30th.  At this point, the 2013 firearm deer season harvest appears to have decreased in all regions this year, especially in the Upper Peninsula and southern Lower Peninsula.  Some areas of southern Michigan saw an extensive outbreak of disease two summers ago, affecting the population.  Visit Michigan.gov/deer if you’re interested in filling out a survey for 2013 hunting activities.
