The number of deer hunters was down in Michigan in 2014, according to a survey by state officials.
Officials told the Michigan Natural Resources Commission this week that the state sold seven percent fewer licenses in 2014.
Also, there were 12 percent fewer antlered deer and 18 percent fewer antlerless deer harvested.
Forty-one percent of hunters took at least one deer, down from 43 percent in 2013.
The Gongwer News Service reports that the survey also shows that hunter satisfaction was down with fewer hunters seeing deer or taking deer.
