Hunting Facts


Two of the considerations used when establishing a deer management plan are Biological Carrying Capacity (BCC) and Cultural Carrying Capacity (CCC).


Deer establish a territory and will not leave it. Deer are known to starve rather than leave their domain.


Just 2 deer without predation can produce a herd of up to 35 deer in just 7 years.


Hunters spent $5.2 billion in 1996 for hunting trips, $11.3 billion on equipment, and $4.8 billion for licenses, stamps, tags, and permits, land leasing and ownership, membership dues and contributions, and magazines. Source: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
