Re: Will WMU 3A change for 2012
Deer numbers are fair to good in the areas of 3A that I've hunted in for the past 50+ years (NW Tioga/NE Potter).
Don't see any pressing reason to mess it up, by dropping first week concurrency. Biggest issue I see affecting deer sightings, is the major decrease in hunting pressure during firearms seasons. Most now sit and wait, very few hunters actually moving deer, let alone many drives taking place.
Otherwise, I wouldn't still be seeing lots of deer out feeding evenings in late summer/early fall, as opposed to the fewer numbers seen during firearms seasons.
The deer are there. Hardly anyone is causing them to move much these days, come the seasons.
