DNR said the Deer Harvest was down quite a bit last winter Our shotgun and Muzzleloader seasons run in December and January and that was when weather was harshest so I don't think as many hunters got out,. About 2 weeks ago the wife said when she came home for lunch 3 crossed in front of her by my brothers house and 5 more crossed just below our lane, thats within 3 miles.
That night I counted 15 more crossing into the neighbors timber. So population is still high in some areas.
DNR is also predicting fishing will be off this year due to the excessive length of time the hevy ice was on the lakes.
