TN 2013-14 DEER HARVEST UPDATE
Although Tennessee Wildlife Resources has not officially released total
harvest figures, the data from their website indicated statewide harvest
total stood at 168,048.
Top county in the state this year went to Giles as hunters there bagged a
total of 5,388. Second place went to Fayette County with 4,726. Hunters in
Henry County were third and checked in 4,553 deer this season.
TWRA should be finalizing the total figures in the next few days but it’s
not likely the present figures posted will change much. Overall it was a
pretty good season statewide and another good one for local deer hunters.

A tip of the hat goes to the boys and girls who took to the woods and
fields and also to those adults who took the time to carry them.
