Hunters savor wild game meat delicacies

Fall hunting seasons are well under way. Deer hunters, including youth, early muzzleloaders and archers have taken well over 20,000 deer so far. Next weekend, Dec. 4, is the opener for shotgun deer season number one. More than 40,000 resident hunters will be out and about to reduce the deer herd numbers even more. In 2009-10, a grand total of 161,000+ deer were killed by the time all seasons ended in late January. The numbers for 2010-11 may not be as high, but will be very close. Parts of Iowa are already at 'management objective levels' deemed on track for acceptable deer numbers.
