Texas has gone up dramatically on permits, also.

Prices of things go up. I think there may still be a deer or two in Pennsylvania for those that want to get out of the truck. I suggest you do some research on opinions in the Northeast forum as this particular horse has been beat to death and the carcass obliterated.

There usually are no deer within 100 yards of your truck , start walking until you see some .
and thay also said their going out of state to hunt deer
Waaaahhhh !! More deer for those who stay .
and thay will never hunt in the state of pa again
See above response .
and the permit sales went down a bought 8 percent
Not an unusual fluctuation .
and i bet thay will go down a lot more
Unlikely since the whiners responsible for the 8% drop are already factored in .
why would any one want to pay a lot more money for a hunting permit
and have nothing to shoot
Who says that there is nothing to shoot ? Walk out of sight of the truck and you'll see deer , maybe not 50-100 per day , but that number is way too high anyway .

One thing that annoys me more than anything about many hunters is their refusal to hunt for what they want and subsequent whining when they don't get it . If you can see your truck you aren't far enough in , walk in at least 1/2 mile if you want to see deer regularly in areas where the pressure is high . I can't count the number of posts I've seen by Pennsylvanians whining about the "good ol' days" when it was normal to see 100 deer in one day , this is an abnormal condition caused by an overpopulated herd . The area I live in holds about 30-45 deer per square mile , and the DNR has designated these counties as "reduction counties" with larger than normal antlerless limits because of it . You can also thank antler restrictions for part of the problem , passing on bucks is suicide when your herd is overpopulated . The game commission's response will be totally predictable , they will raise the antlerless kill until the herd numbers drop substantially to compensate , which they have done . After a few years the herd will rebound , but with tighter control of it's numbers , and you'll be better off for it .
