Minnesota's deer kill was down in 2008
ST. PAUL -- Bad weather on opening weekend and a lower deer population are blamed for a drop in the number of deer shot by Minnesota hunters last year.
Minnesota's deer kill was down 19 percent in 2008. But it's still one of the largest deer harvests in state history.
The Department of Natural Resources says the 2008 season saw 222,000 deer shot in Minnesota -- down 38,000 from 2007.
