Deer Season Update
The unofficial deer kill for New Hampshire’s 2011 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 2011 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 2011 statewide harvest of 11,167 is up 14% from the 2010 preliminary estimate and is the highest estimated kill since 2007. At the time of the last call-in following Thanksgiving weekend, the estimated 2011 kill was only 4% above 2010 indicating that the late 2011 season was quite successful.
A summary of the actual kill by Wildlife Management Unit (WMU) compared to previous years will be sent out as soon as registration information is received and data entry is complete. 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. Thanks to all those who helped make these deer season updates possible and Happy Holidays to all.
