Well they are out for us that are excited for this years firearms season. Most of us are still in conservative hunting areas but things are looking up. In general the DNR says that there were more deer seen after last years milder winter. More does with two or more fawns are seen statewide. The antlers on bucks are growing and growing fast.
Mid-Summer reports from wildlife managers around the state place the overall deer population recovery on solid footing. However, during the 2015 season, conservative population management will allow deer numbers to rebuild across much of the state. One deer limits will apply for most hunters during this rebuilding year.
