CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire Fish and Game officials say the number of deer harvested during the ongoing archery season is down 22 percent from last year but still ranks among the highest in recent years.

Archery deer season opened Sept. 15 and runs through Dec. 15.

Fish and Game biologist Dan Bergeron says he expects harvest numbers to remain high throughout the remainder of the season.

Deer muzzleloader season opens Saturday and runs through Nov. 11. Regular firearms season - one eagerly awaited by the state’s more than 61,000 hunters - opens Dec. 12.

Hunting licenses are required. They cost $22 for residents and $103 for nonresidents.

Hunters under 16 do not need a license but they must be accompanied by a licensed adult who is at least age 18.
