Re: Former USP Leader - If I Ran The Deer Program
Nah, sounds to me like he's still stuck on the same old "We <span style="font-style: italic">should</span> have more deer" mantra that Col. Slinsky tutored him on, about 12 years ago?
Nothing much has changed. Those who reveled in seeing lots of deer on opening days by the late 1990s, still demand to see more deer than they've been seeing since HR reduced deer numbers in many areas.
The only things that have changed with this bunch, is their constant search for some new ways to demand the same thing: More deer. There are already more deer in many areas where habitats have improved.
There are still fewer deer in many other areas, for a variety of reasons: Continuing poor habitats; Concentrations of hunters, due to access or prefered hunting spots, etc.
Nothing much ever really changes here in PA when it comes to deer hunter complaints. Consider that some were complaining about "no deer" back when our herd numbers peaked and that's really about all one needs to understand.
