I believe Texas is the winner-it has 3million hunters.Michigan is up there as well as Wisconsin and don't forget Pa.We take an average of 400,000 deer annually-not bad for a state that size.

What do you mean by largest? A bigger state may have more numbers killed. But what about &quot;emphasis&quot; on the deer season? Does Michigan or Texas shut schools and some businesses down during gun season because the kids wouldn't be there anyway?

Almost all PA schools aren't open on Monday after Thanksgiving which is opening day of deer season. coincidence? nope PA hunting is great now if we only had deer as large as Michigan & Texas. oh wait new antler restrictions are supposed to make that happen.

What kind of question is this? Texas has more land mass. Michigan has more deer killed. Texas has a bigger deer population. Michigan has larger deer.
Don't think these two boys will solve this probelm with a 6 pack over the camp fire.
Sounds like both are correct.

That's what I'm getting at cable guy. In WV, the season starts the Monday before Thanksgiving and all week is shut down. At least when I was there many moons ago.......<img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>
