  • Some hunters complain about a lack of deer every year, but the concerns this season seem to be more widespread. Since early January, radio programs, newspapers and online forums have featured much discussion about hunters statewide seeing and harvesting fewer deer during the 2016-17 season.

    Hunters question whether seemingly low deer numbers are caused by disease, excessive harvests, coyote predation or wild hog competition. Many variables affect deer populations, and some of these can have more of an impact at local levels.
