Setting Deer Tagging Records

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Many states have had successful deer hunting season. Some have set new records, others pushing the envelope, while others have had good solid seasons. In Missouri, officials are claiming they have set a new record for number of deer killed – 280,856 and in Ohio, with the new expanded “extra weekend” hunt, when all is said and done, they may break a record.

Missouri’s bow hunting season runs until January 15. Final totals won’t be available until after that but they have already exceeded the previous record by over 5,000 deer.

Ohio’s bow season runs until February 4 as well as a primitive weapon hunt still to go at the end of the month. The totals from all this may set a new record for Ohio. Currently, harvest numbers stand at 191,924.
