The state Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control announced the third highest deer harvest of all time for the 2010-11 hunting season.
Deer season runs Sept. 1 through Jan. 31.
A total of 14,183 deer were harvested, a 14.4 percent increase over last year's season.
The record harvest is 14,401 deer, so the record was missed by just 218 deer.
For those keeping track, 2009 had a lower than expected harvest, due largely to poor weather. The 14.4% jump is a bit misleading.
