MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin deer hunters registered more than 243,000 deer during this year’s nine-day gun season.

That represents a 7.7 percent increase over the year before. The Department of Natural Resources report for the 2012 deer season shows nearly 115,000 bucks were harvested, a 12 percent increase.

The final results are expected to go higher as all the tags are counted.

More than 633,000 hunters from all 50 states and several foreign countries bought licenses this season, including 29 thousand first-time hunters.

Seven people were shot and there was one fatality.
