STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE FISH AND GAME DEPARTMENT WILDLIFE DIVISION

17 December 2009
Estimated 2009 Total Deer Kill

The unofficial deer kill for New Hampshire’s 2009 season is listed below with comparisons to similar estimates from the previous 8 years.  As with all previous call-in figures, these numbers are all estimates based on the number of deer reported as being registered (not necessarily killed) in each county and may not represent complete data from all registration stations. The estimated 2009 harvest may change when all registration data have been received and verified and earlier estimates may not match final harvest figures for pervious years.

The estimated 2009 statewide harvest of 10,390 is down 5% from the 2008 preliminary estimate at the same point in time but is similar to those from prior to 2006. Based on these preliminary registration figures, it appears that various parts of the state experienced increases, decreases or not much change from 2008. Further analysis of the actual kill by Wildlife Management Unit (WMU) as registration data are received and verified will provide more detailed information.

A detailed analysis of the sex, age and distribution of the kill on a WMU basis will be made in the near future. All registration slips should be received within the next week and verified against registration seals issued and returned. Data entry, verification and preliminary analysis should be complete by early January when a final summary of this year’s hunt will be available. Happy Holidays to all.
