The first week of the state's two-week firearm season for hunting deers has produced fewer deer taken and at least one hunter seriously injured. According to Brian Eyler, Deer Project Leader for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, colder than normal temperatures and windy conditions, as well an abundance of acorns, led to a 10 percent drop in the number of deer taken compared to last year. There were 15,829 whitetails taken compared to 17,613 last year. Of the whitetails taken, 6,759 were antlered and 9,070 were without antlers.
