Deer hunting in the First State has come a long way since 1954 when that first year harvest topped out at 505 animals. It’s been said that many thought too many deer were taken that year and that the population could not sustain that sort of pressure. The graph shows that this was certainly not the case. Annual Delaware deer harvests now routinely top 13,500 animals. For additional harvest information visit www.fw.delaware.gov
