DAVENPORT – It appears that this year’s ammo shortfall didn’t encourage the deer population to reveal themselves to hunters, as early hunting season has netted the smallest harvest in some time.
“It’s probably one of the slowest, non-eventful deer seasons I’ve ever worked,” Officer Curt Wood of the Department of Fish and Wildlife said.
Wood has worked in Lincoln County in his position for 25 years. He said opening weekend for deer hunting season was “one of the slowest weekends” he’s had on the job.
“I think deer populations are way below normal,” Wood said.
