From the Maryland Department of Natural Resources - 2013-14 Deer Season Results Released
Maryland hunters harvested 95,863 deer during the archery, muzzleloader and firearm seasons combined (September 6, 2013 through January 31, 2014). The harvest shows a 10 percent increase compared to last year’s total of 87,541 deer. Biologists attribute the increase to multiple factors including more hunters participating and better hunting conditions, with deer actively searching for acorns that were scarce in most locations.
“Our deer harvest rebounded to levels closer to what they were before last year’s significant decline,” said Brian Eyler, Maryland Department of Natural Resources deer project leader. “I believe we had more hunters in the woods this year and hunting conditions were better than last year.”
