MADISON - Wisconsin hunters typically saw more deer this gun season, although many hunters in the Northwoods say otherwise.
The DNR released its full report Tuesday.
Hunters shot more than 243-thousand deer during the state's nine-day gun season this year.
That's a 7.7 percent increase over 2011.
Close to 115-thousand of those deer were bucks... that's up 12 percent over last year.
The final tallies are expected to rise once all tags are counted.
The DNR says seven people were shot, including one hunter who died.
Wardens also reported 994 citations and arrests, down 15 from last year.
