Iowa deer hunters harvested more deer in 2014 than 2013. 

In 2014, 101,500 deer were harvested. That's an increase from the 99,414 deer harvested in 2013. 

According to the Iowa Department of National Resources, hunters reported harvesting 6 percent fewer does, but 15 percent more bucks. 

Officials with the DNR say the reduction in the doe harvest was part of a management plan to allow the herd to stabilize.

2006 had the most deer harvested with 150,552.
