SD deer season another record
Pierre, S.D. (AP) – State wildlife officials say South Dakota’s
2008 deer season was another record-breaker.
Harvest surveys compiled by the Game, Fish and Parks Department
show that hunters killed about 74,000 white-tailed deer and 18,000
mule deer, for a record total of more than 91,000 deer.
That is an increase of more than 4,000 deer from 2007 and nearly
double the 46,000 deer killed in 1999. The department said it was
the ninth straight year that the deer harvest increased.
