WISCONSIN (WAOW) - Early numbers by the DNR report 218,144 deer were taken this gun-hunt season.

That's an 11 percent increase over the 2009 season.

The opener was highlighted by good hunting conditions on opening day and no firearm-related fatalities for only the second time on record.

Those harvest numbers are expected to change before a final report is published in late winter.
