DELAWARE NEWS: Fifty Deer Per Square Mile Post-Hunt Still Too Many

State experts say Delaware still has too many deer.

Rob Hossler with the Division of Fish and Wildlife told hunters Sunday that there were an estimated 36,000 deer in Delaware after the recent hunting season. He says the goal is to reduce the population to 40 deer per square mile of deer habitat- or 29,000 statewide.

Hossler says the state could add several days to the hunting season and might allow hunters to bag more deer.
