:lol::lol::lol: good one!According to the DNR the pre-season herd will number approx. 1.84 million deer this year.
The post season herd will be roughly 1.4 million deer this winter. If current trends continue, expect the herd to top 2 million in 2010.
(Of course if the crossbow bill passes predictions are that the herd will be reduced to around 500,000 deer in the first season and totally eradicated by year two.)
137, 11 antlered bucks, 52 does, and 74 fawns. Hell, my guess is as good as the DNRs.
I would like to see a mandatory check in system. I think it would help the Dnr with their guesstimation. It definatly couldnt hurt any.Lets see, do I have a better way to figure it out. I believe most of the states in the midwest have either 24 hour call-ins which require no man hours because it is automated, or check in stations. L&O, I will not even comment on your rebut.
Since you seem to be so well versed on the benefits of call in or physical check-in methods over scientific based statistical sampling, please elaborate on how each of these States factor compliance rate into the data that they publish and the impact that it has on the validity of the results. I'm assuming, based on your recent article where you publicly criticized the DNR for the methods they use in this regard, that you are thoroughly familiar with the methodology of the tele-check and physical check in process, and should be able to provide a cogent answer as to the impact that compliance has on this process. :16suspectLets see, do I have a better way to figure it out.
