While there are places with far fewer deer now, than they once may have had, obviously there are also lots of areas with plenty of deer. Otherwise, we wouldn't consistently be killing upwards of 300,000 each year.
In the 55+ years I've been hunting deer, there never were deer distributed equally everywhere I'd ever hunted them. It's kinda why I've tended to hunt them where they are fairly plentiful - not where they're scarce.
Might sound harsh, but that's how it is. Spent enough time when I was younger, hunting deer in nearby counties, because I didn't have the time to travel north where I knew deer where to be found.
Oddly enough, most of those closer to home counties I hunted in during the 60s and early 70s, now have far more deer than they did back then.
