Estimated Deer Kill Throughout the State of New Hampshire

Posted by admin On December - 28 - 2011

This is an estimation of how many deer were killed and tagged throughout the 2011 hunting season in New Hampshire.

The estimates might be off however, they added those tags that were purchased and not necessarily used as well. This makes the numbers a bit higher than they would actually be since the deer might not have been captured and killed.

It also might be lacking information from some of the registration stations. The 2011 statewide total is up around 4 percent more than it was in 2010 coming in at 9,723. The increase is due to the bump in registrations in the Rockingham and Belknap counties.

The firearm season normally runs until December 4th, although some of the WMU-A areas end their firearms season on November 27th. Archery continues through until December 15th, and WMU-A ends on December 6th.

The reported deer kill for the following counties, go as followed:

  • Belknap: 2010 – 554 and 2011 – 780
  • Carroll: 2010 – 445 and 2011 – 458
  • Cheshire: 2010 – 1027 and 2011 – 963
  • Coos: 2010 – 676 and 2011 – 560
  • Grafton: 2010 – 1168 and 2011 – 1218
  • Hillsborough: 2010 – 1799 and 2011 – 1839
  • Merrimack: 2010 – 763 and 2011 – 909
  • Rockingham: 2010 – 1368 and 2011 – 1704
  • Stafford: 2010 – 634 and 2011 – 628
  • Sullivan: 2010 – 631 and 2011 – 664
  • Totals for each year: 2010 – 9,339 and 2011 – 9,723

    Instead of saying deer killed, why not say “harvested” , sounds better and maybe keeps the anti hunters from having a fit.

      Yeah I hear what you’re saying, but I don’t bother trying to tip toe around someone’s emotions. If someone wants to have a fit, feel free, it doesn’t bother me any. Thanks for the comment Rob, hope all is well and have a Happy New Year!
