What do you guys think ? Considering last years decline, I would guess much of the same. My prediction is a 15% decline in antlerless from 2013, and 12% buck from 2013.

The antlerless harvest numbers will automatically be lower due to the reduction of tags in the northern tier. I still will predict a 15% decline in farmland region. In my opinion, many factors have brought us to this point....but over harvest of breeding does is number one. The slide will continue as it appears many many hunters are unable to resist putting venison on the table, eventhough they know deep down it might be wise to let her walk. The entitlement program is alive and well. Puke Crying

I predict there will be less deer harvested this season with the sales of archery and rifle archery being up with more deer shot than a normal bow season. With that said, the dnr will find a different reason why the kill was low. Some reasons might be the weather again like every year. Or not enough license sold because of the deer herd up north. Anyways good luck to all that r hunting.

I think license sales will be quite high today since the weather looks warmer for the weekend. If it would have stayed cold sales would have been down quite a bit.

"I believe that sales will be down, but not nearly as much as that comparison shows."

I agree with you landman. I wouldn't be surprised if close to another 100K licenses were sold after that came out yesterday...through this evening.

Still though, license sales are going to be down at least somewhat.

Landman, you are most likely right. In Mineesota, the dnr did a very long study of wolves and deer. In the study, one doe was 15 yrs old, in the wild and still produced fawns.

qdmaguy-

Interesting data, but not a fair comparison. The biggest day for license sales is today. I just got back from Tomahawk and there was a long line of people buying licenses.

The data you have excludes today, but compares to sales at the end of gun season in 2013.

I believe that sales will be down, but not nearly as much as that comparison shows.
