Door and Kewaunee counties see more deer hunters

The 2020 firearms deer season is drawing more hunters to forests and fields around Door and Kewaunee counties.  Preliminary totals show nearly 1063 deer were taken in Door County while 1020 were harvest in Kewaunee County during the weekend opener.  The Department of Natural Resources, however, says nearly 560,000 hunters purchased firearms deer tags statewide this season, which marks an increase from 2019.  Wildlife Biologist Joshua Martinez says that was evident at first glance around public hunting lands.

A total of 95,257 deer were harvested statewide during the opening weekend of the 2020 nine-day gun deer hunt. That compares to 93,155 in 2019.
