Successful Start to Deer Hunting in Burnett County
The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources reports Hunters participating in the traditional November 9-day gun deer hunt registered a preliminary tally of 100,330 deer over the first two days of the hunt. That is down by over 30,000 from 2008.
However, in Burnett county overall numbers were up. The DNR reports 1,710 deer were tagged, which is 26 more than the opening weekend last year.
Polk county saw totals drop from 3,458 to 3,321.
The DNR says the drop statewide was caused by warmer temperatures and heavy fog.
