(UNDATED) - The Indiana Department of Natural Resources says ice, rain and fog lowered numbers during the final round of deer reduction hunting this year.

Nineteen state parks were closed Monday and Tuesday, so registered volunteers could participate in the second widespread hunt to control the deer population.

Indiana DNR Spokesman Mike Mycroft says they killed about 350. About 950 deer were killed during the first round in November.

The DNR began reductions in 1993 to keep deer herds from wiping out state park vegetation.
