Outdoors: Deer season is closing in


Texas is the number one state in deer population with the deer herd numbering near four million.  Other states like Mississippi and Alabama have more deer per square foot because they don’t come near the total acreage of Texas so their deer are crammed into less area.

In 2015 the total deer harvested in Texas was 581,000 with the largest harvest, as always, in the Hill Country with south Texas second and the Pineywoods third.

What can we expect this upcoming season which opens Saturday Nov. 5 in both North and South Zones?
