Hunters killed about six-percent more deer than a year ago during the opening weekend
Wisconsin hunters killed an estimated 112-thousand-581 deer on the opening weekend of the nine-day gun season. That's almost six-percent more than a year ago. And the D-N-R says the final weekend tally will probably be larger. That's because the preliminary count was based on phone calls to registration stations yesterday morning -- hours before the final deadline to register the weekend's animals.
