After a pretty mild winter over much of the state, you can expect a strong deer population to be carried over into the fall of 2020.  Since so much of the corn crop was left standing over the winter it also made for plenty of accessible food for the animals as well.

Again, the deadline to apply for these remaining licenses is July 22nd and it's only for hunters who are unsuccessful in the initial lottery.
