Default I think i might have to many deer?

We have had a record kill this year with 13 down 3 mature bucks 2 button bucks and 8 does we have never killed this many deer before but this is not the problem. What is the problem is that now that it is winter all the deer are looking for food sources to last the winter and we are the only property in a few miles with any good food we have about 4oo acers of barley that the deer are just devouring and last night i saw 42 deer from my stand the most Ive ever seen and total between 3 guys we saw about 100 deer in two nights this has never happened before normally its just about 8 every night and I'm wondering if the deer are getting two crowded. Ive heard that when deer get compacted like this they get a greater chance of getting CWD.
