Hunters take 192,327 deer over first 8 days of Wisconsin gun season.


MADISON, Wisconsin — The state Department of Natural Resources says hunters have killed 192,327 deer during the first eight days of the 2015 gun season.

According to DNR figures, hunters took 100,740 antlerless deer and 91,587 antlered deer between opening day on Nov. 21 and Saturday. Hunters saw the most success over the first eight days in Marathon County, where they killed 7,650 deer.

The agency plans to release the harvest total from Sunday, the 9-day season's final day, on Tuesday. Hunters would have had to kill 7,256 deer that day to match last year's season total of 199,583 deer.

This story has been updated to correct the number of deer hunters killed during the 2014 9-day gun season. According to the DNR's final tally, they killed 199,583 deer, not 191,550.
