Re: Deer Population question
I agree, there really are few places, that I hunt, that I could see 75 yds on both sides. I was using it to ilustrate to others that they really hunt a VERY small area when they go for a "walkabout".
IMO, 20DPSM will not get you 3-4 deer sightings per day. 20 dpsm is one deer per 32 acres. So, you'd have to hunt, or see, 120 acres to see that many deer, assuming all the deer in that area stood still fer ya, which they don't. Of course, I'm assuming you are the lone hunter in the area and the deer are not effected by anyone but you.
IMO, for a hunter to see 10 deer per day, in general, requires a deer herd that probably will far exceed 20 dpsm.
