2011–12 Deer Season Harvest Summary

Brought to you by:
145459.png

New Jersey deer hunters harvested 50,109 deer during the 2011–2012 season between September 10, 2011 and February 18, 2012. The harvest for this year’s deer season is 9.6 percent lower than the 55,404 deer taken in 2010. Harvest reductions were due in part to the addition of five zones to Antler Point Restrictions, a good mast crop in the southern portion of the state and an outbreak of Epizootic Hemorrhagic Disease. The antlerless portion of the 2011 harvest was 31,533 deer, down 11 percent from 2010. The antlered portion of the 2011 harvest was 18,575 deer, down almost seven percent from 2010 . 37277.png
