Close to 165,000 Deer Harvested During 2014-15 Seasons

Posted: Updated:
 NASHVILLE --- Close to 165,000 deer were harvested in Tennessee during the recently completed 2014-15 seasons according to data gathered by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency.

The statewide gun season concluded Jan. 4 and the youth hunt followed on Jan. 10-11. The harvest numbers range from the start of archery season on Sept. 27, 2014 through the final youth hunt.

This year's statewide total of 164,869 again reflects the stability of the state's deer population. Last year's total was just slightly above 168,000. 

Giles County again leads the way with the top county with 5,241 harvested. Fayette County was second for the second straight year with a harvest of 4,760.  Rounding out the top counties, which all had harvest of at least 3,000, were Henry 4,473, Lincoln 4,318, Hardeman 4,212, Maury 3,968, Montgomery 3,534, Franklin 3,327, Carroll 3,262, Weakley 3,188, Hardin 3,151, Madison 3,126, Hickman 3,067, and Wayne 3,014.

The harvest totals can be viewed on the TWRA website (www.tnwildlife.org) and is located in the “For Hunters” section.
