Iowa hunters bag fewer deer

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) - Iowa hunters harvested fewer deer in the latest season than the previous year.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources reports about 137,000 deer were harvested in 2009. That's a drop of almost 6,000 from 2008.

Despite the drop-off, officials said the numbers continue a five year trend of reducing the size of Iowa's deer herd.
