Early/midseason deer harvest in New Hampshire

This page was updated on October 25, 2013.

The preliminary numbers on the deer kill in New Hampshire as of mid-October are listed below, along with a comparison of recent years' harvest at this same point in the season. The 2013 total of 2,518 at this point in the season represents an increase of 30% from the 2012 season. The harvest remains up significantly from 2009 and 2010, when the September archery season was bucks only, and is the highest in the last nine years. Reported registrations in most counties have increased toward or surpassed 2007 levels when the state’s second highest total deer kill occurred.
 
Hunters are reminded that the New Hampshire Food Bank and the New Horizons Food Bank in Manchester are seeking donations of whole or processed deer. Click here for information.
