Deer Hunters Had Success in 1966 Season Minnesota firearms deer hunt-. Tt is the fourth consecutive ers experienced another successful season hi 1966. Director of Game and Fish Ted Shields reported today that the annual deer hunter post card survey shows a hunter success of 40 per cent last year. The figure is down slightly from the 44 per cent success ratio in 1965 but still represents the highest success ratio in the northern states where white-tailed deer are hunted. Shields said that about 291,000 firearms hunters took 116,000 deer in 1966. This is a record number of deer hunters for Minnesota^ although it is only slightly more than the 290,000 hunters in 1965. year that the deer kill has gone over the 110,000 figure. Shields said that the 4 per cent drop in hunter success was due to the severe winter of 19651966 which caused a loss of some deer In localized areas, mostly in the northern counties. Fawn production held up surprisingly well statewide even though reports during the season suggested the fawn crop was dom in several areas. A preliminary analysis of hunter report cards showed that 23 per cent of the deer bagged were fawns. Shields said this is a normal fawn take and is the same as the 23 per cent statewide'fawn harvest, recorded in 1965.
