LITTLE ROCK — The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission reports a near record number of deer were taken during the 2013-14 deer hunting season.

The commission said hunters checked 213,199 deer during the season, fewer than 300 short of the record of 213,487 deer harvested last year.

The commission also said that for the first time ever more does than bucks were taken. The commission reported 107,247 does to 105,952 bucks harvested. The buck totals include both antlered bucks and button, or nubbin, bucks.

Union County was the top deer hunting county in the state with 8,482 checked by hunters, followed by Drew, Cleveland, Bradley and Ashley counties.
