The annual hunt, staged this year at the South Mountain Reservation and the Hilltop Reservation, is intended to protect plant life and reduce the number of deer-related car accidents. It took place during the last two weeks of January and the first two weeks of February, though it was canceled for two days due to snow.

County officials say 108 deer were killed in the hunt. That’s a slight increase from 2013, when 104 deer were culled.

More than 1,000 deer have been killed since the hunt began in 2008.
