MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- State wildlife officials say hunters killed 5 percent more deer last year than in 2011.

According to preliminary data from the Department of Natural Resources, hunters killed a total of 366,747 deer over all the state seasons last year compared with 347,711 in 2011.

They killed 245,539 deer during the 2012 traditional nine-day November gun hunt and 93,452 during the archery season, including 45,775 bucks, a new state archery harvest record.

The numbers aren't final. The archery season continues in metro units.
