"It appears as though deer harvest improved substantially since the first weekend", said Steve Merchant, DNR wildlife populations and regulations manager.

Of the deer harvested over the firearms season, 54 percent were bucks, compared to 63 percent in 2016.

Top harvest counties this year were Howell with 2,095 deer checked, Franklin with 2,060 and Texas with 1,855. It was up six percent in Zone 2, which runs from Canada to Iowa and covers most of the state, and it was down 12 percent in southeastern Minnesota.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is reminding hunters the importance of deer checks as hunters head out Wednesday for the start of firearm deer hunting season.

Part of the increase in the deer harvest so far is an increase in the number of antlerless deer taken.

Hunters in Zone 3 of southeast Minnesota registered 12 percent fewer deer than previous year.

DNR projections estimate this year's firearms deer harvest at about 200,000.

Checking in deer helps DNR with information like what hunters are harvesting and also the overall health of the deer, especially when it comes to Chronic Wasting disease. The late youth portion of firearms deer season runs November 24-26.

Hunters harvested almost 94,977 deer.
