Report: Record number of antlered bucks taken | New Hampshire

New Hampshire hunters killed 7,708 antlered bucks in 2017 — more than in any year since 1922, when the state first started keeping records.

The total kill during deer season was 12,309, according to the newly released 2017 New Hampshire Wildlife Harvest Summary.

“Archers took 3,102 deer, the youth weekend accounted for 270, while muzzleloaders and regular firearms hunters took 2,662 and 6,275 deer,” Fish and Game said in a news release.

The Harvest Summary includes data from the N.H. Trophy Deer Program, run by the N.H. Antler and Skull Trophy Club, which annually recognizes hunters who take deer with a weight of 200 pounds or more by each of three hunting methods (archery, muzzleloader, and regular firearms).

The heaviest deer for 2017 (253 pounds) was taken by Patrick Couch of Rochester using a regular firearm.

The 2017 bear harvest total was 587, down from the record harvest of 898 in 2016, according to the report.
