The numbers from the opening weekend of the nine-day gun deer season in the area was a mixed bag, according to the Wisconsin DNR.  Despite ideal hunting conditions, Door County hunters registered 29 fewer deer than last year.  1557 deer were taken this past weekend compared to 1586 in 2017.  The exact number of bucks was taken again this year, 848, in Door County.  Kewaunee County saw an increase of 5.3 percent of deer harvested on opening weekend with increases in both bucks and antlerless deer.  Statewide the deer kill was up 12.8 percent.  The nine-day hunt concludes this Sunday.
