Hunting Facts


In 1996, 11.3 million people hunted big game such as deer or elk; 6.9 million hunted small game such as rabbits or squirrels; 3.1 million hunted migratory birds such as doves or waterfowl; and 1.5 million hunted other animals such as woodchucks and raccoons. Source:U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.


Deer can live up to 11 years in the wild.


In areas of overpopulation, deer cause an over browsing affect called a "browse line". In areas with a browse line, most plant species below the browse line are stripped bare damaging the habitat for many species. These browse lines can be from four to six feet high.
