    The number of tests performed might have something to do with the fact that the schools were on spring break during this period. A normal 2 week period would have 10 days of class for the labs to work on testing. More than likely the labs were only working 4 days.

    Looking back I noticed this comment. Totally ridiculous to think that the Core Area averages are at or over 100 deer per square mile. Someone goes out and sees a good number of deer in some ag field or a food plot and they think that the same number of deer are in the same numbers everywhere. Again, totally ridiculous.

    Have you ever driven through the area? I made the rounds with a farmer to SEVERAL ag fields within a 5 mile radius of each other. I guarantee you that in that in that 5 mile radius the population density is in the 100's per square mile.

    100s per square mile is off.. Hunted the area for years. Big numbers but not 100s per square mile..

    6-23-17 update.
    The Core Area does have or had a large DPSM number, but it was never in the 100's per square mile as ONE alarmists who lives outside the area wants others to believe. Again, some people see 1 field of alfalfa or beans with a large number of deer eating that crop and they think that the same number of deer are in everywhere in the Core Area. SMH.

    Does 6 deer per 40 acres sound right?

    If there is 6 deer on that 40 eating in the middle of the winter that means that each and every 40 has the same number don' it? :lol: Hard to believe counting deer poop was a better method than we now have. No wonder certain someone's got ran out of their old job.

    I believe 100 dpsm a few year ago. Possibly still close to that now. I'm not in the core area, but close. My back 40 is currently home to 6-12 deer at any one time and we shoot anywhere from 2-5 does per year, along with 1-2 bucks on average. Before we started shooting does, it wasn't uncommon to see 30 deer per sit in a heavily wooded area with 80 yds of visibility. My back 40 is so thick a deer could zig zag across the whole thing without ever being seen if it wanted. Population is down in the past 4 years to more managable numbers.
