Are deer numbers down? Yeah. Is quality down? Yeah. Is it because of hunting? No. Half the guys out there couldn’t kill a deer if it got in the truck with them.
I do recall back to back massive winters in 2015 and 2016 90 something percent fawn mortality those years. And man I sure have been seeing a lot of bears and cats in places I’ve never seen them before...
Fawns grow up too you know. No fawns, no deer
Better get that auto aimer with gps guided bullets to hunt them then, tech isn't an issue after all
