I propose that I leave for Montana or Wyoming. Then there'll be one less.

In my particular deer haunts, still too few. Was way down a few years ago but have come back a bit. More ground that is posted so limited hunter presence. Those areas not posted get wiped out and guys don't bother any more.



As for deer/car collisions, the insurance companies don't lose any money. They'll pass the costs on to customers.

Exactly correct. The insurance companies could care less about deer/auto collisions. They know what it is going cost long before it happens and collect it from everyone they insure before it even happens. They don't loss a thing with deer collisions, in fact they probably make more money as a result of them since they charge everyone for them before they even occur.

There will never be a concrete answer! Some areas they are scarce and some they are way too many. Large areas controlled by clubs or land owners that are posted make it impossible! I hunt a club that has approx. 300 acres and we see deer every morning crossing the road heading back into a neighboring property that is posted and NO hunting allowed. Ask the farmer next door and he will certainly tell you there are too many but they can't be hunted! This happens all over Pa.

A hunter on one side of a hill that sees 30 deer and a hunter on the other side of the hill that sees none will probably give conflicting reports.

In The se part of the state it is not that there are not enough deer. There is to much land development driving deer in developments. Unless you have access to private land after first few weeks many become nocturnal. Additionally tou have the idiots that have no common hunting sense when in the woods
