Cool Weather Prevails for Fall Turkey and Deer Hunters 2008 Turkey & Deer Harvest Numbers Up
Annapolis, Md. — Maryland hunters benefited from cool autumn temperatures this year and reported an increase in the fall turkey and early season deer harvests compared to 2007.

“The improved fall turkey harvest is due to a combination of favorable weather and a recent increase in the population in Western Maryland,” said Pete Jayne, DNR’s Associate Director for Game Management. “This time last year we were experiencing widespread impacts to deer from hemorrhagic disease, which attributed to a decrease in hunter success in 2007. I’m glad to say that Maryland is largely free of the disease this year and hunters are benefiting from a slight rebound in the population.”

While sitting still is most important, full camouflage helps hunters blend into the surroundings and elude the turkey's keen eyesight.
