Sales of deer hunting licenses are down by 11 percent
Sales of Wisconsin deer-hunting licenses are down by 11 percent for the upcoming gun season.
The Department of Naturay Resources said 335,000 licenses were sold through Sunday, down from 376,000 at the same time a year ago.
Officials recently warned hunters that this year's harvest would probably be less than last year's.
That's because of lower fawn production and the ending of the Earn-A-Buck program, which forced many hunters to shoot does before taking bucks.
