DELAWARE NEWS: 269 Deer Shy of a Record Harvest

The numbers are in from last season's deer harvest in Delaware and the total was the second highest in state history.
Hunters bagged 14-thousand-401 deer -- that's 268 fewer than the record set in the 2004-2005 season.

More than 6-thousand of the deer were killed during the 8-day shotgun season in November.

The entire deer season spanned five months from September through January.

This was the second year for the new January handgun season. The handgun kills this year numbered 135, compared to 114 the previous year.
