Deer hunting by the numbers

Email News Alerts

The number of deer killed during hunting season is down, but that's not necessarily a bad thing, said a local Department of Natural Resources wildlife manager.


In the area covered by the Detroit Lakes DNR office -- western Becker County, Mahnomen County and eastern Norman County -- the deer harvest is down 18 percent from 2008.

A total of 4,114 deer were registered in the region this season compared to 5,017 last year.
