Re: deer herd numbers
this is from the pgc website on deer estimates. Seems to me like I already thought they dont have a clue and the systems used are guesses at best
2. How can the PGC manage deer without knowing the number of deer?
Like other states, the PGC monitors deer populations by tracking trends. Deer management recommendations are made to increase, decrease, or stabilize those trends. To make recommendations, the actual number of deer in a wildlife management unit (WMU) is not needed.
8. Are PASAK estimates accurate?
A comparison between PASAK estimates and the actual number of deer in a WMU is not possible. As a result, accuracy of PASAK estimates cannot be determined.
