INDIANA NEWS: Another Record Deer Harvest

Indiana hunters established a record for the third straight year by reporting an overall harvest of 134,004 deer taken during the 2010 seasons, according to a news release from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.

Reports submitted from 461 check stations across Indiana topped the 2009 total by 1,252 deer, a 1 percent increase, and bettered the 2008 total by more than 4,200 deer.

"We're seeing a healthy number of deer throughout much of the state, and that is translating into success by our hunters during the hunting season" DNR deer biologist Chad Stewart said.

Sounds like the Indiana herd is definitely thriving. I have some friends that hunt 'across the river', and they all did well. Down here in Kentucky, there were a little over 110,000 for 2010. That is the lowest harvest since 2001. And it seems like I've been seeing more deer than ever.
