CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire Fish and Game officials say preliminary numbers for the fall hunting seasons show the unofficial deer kill was down 8 percent from the final count of 2013, a high harvest year.

According to preliminary numbers released Thursday, hunters took 11,464 deer this fall compared to 12,540 last year.

N.H. Fish and Game Deer Project Leader Dan Bergeron says last year was the fourth highest harvest year on record.

He says although the numbers are down a bit from last year, deer hunters had a good year.

He says most counties had deer kills similar to or slightly lower than 2013.

The department says this year’s deer harvest represents about 11.5 percent of the state’s preseason population of roughly 100,000 deer.
