For Wisconsin deer hunters, the opening weekend for gun season was less productive than a year ago.

Hunters harvested over 85,000 deer, which was 14,000 fewer than last year’s opener, according to the state Department of Natural Resources. They also shot fewer bucks.

However, the numbers do show that deer shot in the northern woods was up almost 10 percent.

Jeff Pritzl with DNR stated that weather conditions should create favorable conditions for the rest of the season: “The season is still young. Opportunities continue to abound.”
