The numbers they post are just a estimate, there's no way of knowing the actual harvest , nothing to get really upset about.

Based on the info that they have to work with, yes. between checking butcher shops, hunters and being out in the field, again yes. Too bad everyone doesn't send in harvest info like they should, but those are the one's that whine about the numbers!

Exactly. It's an estimate based on a formula developed over a period of years. I accept that the estimate published is actually arrived at using that formula and that it is an acceptable estimate.

One of the few government or quasi-government statistics I do believe.

I don’t see how anyone could. Complete guess.
Not sure why in the modern world they don’t have required online or call in kill tag numbers like most Midwest states.
That way if you don’t report you don’t get a number and then if you get caught it’s an illegal kill. Hoping people report is just stupid

its mandatory to report your kill in Pa. its not optional. maybe if they had processors file reports with the hunters name and license number, more people would report their kill.
taxidermists had to do this, not sure if they still have to or not.
