Potential Record Indiana Deer Season
Last year's whitetail deer harvest in Indiana was the largest ever with 132,752 deer taken and this year officials are predicting an even larger harvest. 13 WTHR.com has a brief write up on the potential harvest.
State wildlife officials say Indiana's deer hunters are expected to take a near-record number of deer during the state's deer-hunting seasons.
The state's firearms season for white-tailed deer begins Saturday and that 16-day hunt usually accounts for most of the deer taken by hunters.
Deer biologist Chad Stewart of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources expects hunters to take a record or near-record number of deer during the state's various fall hunting seasons.
It's interesting that some states continue to pump up the total harvest, but yet overall hunter numbers are declining.
