We seen far less deer, found a few EHD cases and heard a fraction of the shooting this year compared to even last year which was hit pretty hard with EHD. Donít quote me on this, but as of today it looks like we took about 50,000 less deer this year then last, nothing official just comparing 2012ís total to whatís been reported so far for 2013.
My mistake, it looks like Iowa is down roughly 15,000 from last year.
