Where are deer harvest numbers?

PGC said they would release them mid-march, has anyone seen anything?

Re: Where are deer harvest numbers?

They gotta doctor it so that it can support the legislation's theory that we need to kill 100,000 more a year. It will be along shortly as will an increase in allocations. I would add a decrease in hunter satisfaction but I dont think it could get much worse. The bandwagon will be along shortly to say that theres a deer behind every tree... in three... two...

What I say might not be the popular trend but at least Im not afraid to speak my mind!

Re: Where are deer harvest numbers?

I've seen a pretty steady decrease in harvest numbers over the past 10-12 years.I'm not sure why anyone would think they doctor the numbers based on that.

http://www.portal.state.pa.us/portal...=625882&mode=2

Decrease from 2000-2005
Up and down for 2006-2009
Increase from 2009-2011

I expect another increased harvest this year....at least in their numbers.

You really under estimated the ramifications of the boondoggle you have just perpetrated!

Re: Where are deer harvest numbers?

I enjoy seeing the harvest numbers and the discussions on here that follow. But really it's just a "nice to know" thing. Does it really influence anything anyone does while in the woods hunting? Doubt it. Patience. They will be out soon.

Re: Where are deer harvest numbers?

Yea, can't wait to see the #s either. Travel baseball all summer {scouting season }and football all fall with 2 kids I was only able to kill 3 deer. Off year here. Not a fan of popcorn, but I sure like beer and more beer. I'll go get a couple now and watch the posts come in.

Camp life,it don't get much better!

Re: Where are deer harvest numbers?

I know I didn't add to the total. Of course without a license it would have been illegal.
The "no deer crowd" will be attacking the process saying how the PGC just makes it up ....
Wait, that's already started!

I miss my hunting partner

What it takes them 2 months to do I could do in 2 days, but then you are dealing with a government agency.

Re: Where are deer harvest numbers?

Theres a definitive difference between "no deer" and being misled. I dont care who is doing the misleading but saying that we havent shot enough and need to kill more here is just wrong on all levels.

I will keep hunting, I will keep supporting the GC. But what I see now vs what I saw 5-10 years ago is a drastic difference. I was for some HR but maybe we should change the term to HD.

Take a survey in 4d, see what you find.

Someone noted that numbers dont effect what you do. That is not true. I hunted 2D last year for the first time ever due to harvest trends I saw. Its too bad I didnt do more of it but had limited time and got sick as a dog. Based on what I heard in one day, things are very different there than at home.

What I say might not be the popular trend but at least Im not afraid to speak my mind!
