 FRANKFORT, Ky - Kentucky deer hunters have set a new harvest record for the modern gun deer hunting season that ended this past Sunday.

101,076 deer were harvested during the 16-day season which brings the total season harvest number, according to telecheck to 127,551.

This number is still under the harvest record for last season's 131,395 deer. 

The below average harvest for the upcoming late muzzleloader season would likely put this season as the best ever for harvest.
