Deer Harvest

When Minnesota’s deer season ends in December, it is quite likely the harvest will be in the top five. 

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources projection is above last year’s harvest of just over 173,000, but below the 2003 record harvest of 290,525, and similar to the most recent 20-year average of nearly 206,000.  Prior to 2000, deer harvests in excess of 200,000 occurred only four times.
