New numbers are in for the second week of the firearms deer hunting season, and Minnesota hunters have bagged more than 145,000 of them so far.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources says their preliminary numbers show a 10% increase of registered kills compared to this time last year.

Despite the increase, the harvest for southeastern Minnesota area is actually down 12%. 

The numbers also show a little more than half the deer harvested this year were bucks, that compared to 63% last year.
