(UNDATED) - The Indiana Department of Natural Resources says hunters in 2015 killed the second-smallest number of deer since state park reduction hunts began in 1993.

The Bloomington Herald Times reports that about 800 white-tailed deer were killed at 14 state parks during hunts on November 16 to 17 and November 30 to December 1. Almost 400 deer were killed in 1993, the first year of the hunt, at Brown County State Park.

About 1,000 deer were killed in 2014 at 19 state parks. Nearly 1,300 deer were harvested in 2012 at 14 state parks.
A district biologist with the Department of Natural Resources believes last year's low number of harvested deer was the result of inclement weather.
