DNR: 145K Deer Registered Through 2 Weekends

DNR: 145K Deer Registered Through 2 Weekends”

Part of the increase in the deer harvest so far is an increase in the number of antlerless deer taken.

Minnesota firearms hunters registered 145,054 deer through Sunday, Nov. 12, the DNR said.

Top harvest counties this year were Howell with 2,095 deer checked, Franklin with 2,060 and Texas with 1,855.

Past year hunters checked 96,131 deer during the opening weekend of the 2016 November portion of firearms deer season. "Getting more corn out of the fields and a bit drier weather likely helped". Of the 94,977 deer harvested, 54,027 were antlered bucks, 9,535 were button bucks, and 31,415 were does. It was up six percent in Zone 2, which runs from Canada to Iowa and covers most of the state, and it was down 12 percent in southeastern Minnesota. Instead, the state is requiring hunters to register their deer either on line or over the phone by 5 p.m. the next night. "Until we get the final numbers and see what the overall buck harvest is, we don't know".

The November portion of fall firearms deer seasons continues through Nov. 21. Additional deer will be harvested during the northern rifle zone season, which continues through Sunday, Nov. 19; the late southeast season, which runs Saturday, Nov. 18, through Sunday, Nov. 26; and the muzzleloader season, which begins Saturday, Nov. 25, and continues through Sunday, Dec. 10. Minnesota's muzzleloader season begins Saturday and continues through December 10.
