If you have an opinion about the current state of Pennsylvania’s whitetail deer population or you just want to read the words of others who do then read this blog and get one man’s perspective on the subject.

I hunt deer and drive rural roads daily. During both activities, I see less deer. I have killed deer during hunting season with a rifle and at other times by accident with my car. The cost of doing both is on the rise. Hunters and the Pennsylvania Game Commission are at odds about deer management objectives. Where do you stand?

I'd say give the hunters the whole month of November & December and wack anything resembling a dam deer with no point nor number restrictions.

People are building homes more and more in the rural areas where the deer have flourish and hunting then becomes more restricted. I drive everyday on rural roads and bagged a 6 point couple weeks ago with my car in one of those restricted areas.

Thin the herd to a manageable LOW number and watch the game commission panic. "Deer Management" in Pennsylvania only means "protection" of the billion dollar business it generates every year. The Game commission really could give a hoot about the rising costs to even hunt or the car insurance premium increases or the medical bills resulting from a deer accident. It's all about generating revenue for the state.
