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.
