The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources reports hunters took 13 percent more deer on the season's opening weekend than they did in 2017. 

The nine-day gun hunt started Saturday and hunters harvested a total of 118-thousand-670 deer.  The numbers are up, even though the number of hunters was off by more than 40-thousand this time.  D-N-R officials say snow cover help push deer harvest numbers higher.  Two hunters were shot, but they survived.
