Default How do these deer nmbers look 2 U?

I contacted my local DNR office to get some deer numbers for the area I hunt.

This is what they said:

Buck to Doe Ratio : 1:1.5 to 1: 2.5
Population: 8-10 deer / square mile


How do these number sound to you?

Cool Website!

According to this website, my area contains 30-45 deer per sq. mi. That seems like a large discrepancy to me. Of course I'd rather believe the info on the website you have provided.

Thanks for the reply.

Anyone have any ideas on which one to believe?

It completely depends on where in the country you're located. Your buck/doe ratio loog pretty good. Definately better then in Maine. Your deer per sq mile looks good for Maine or New Hampshire. If you were in Texas or MD the deer per sq mile would be low but that sounds right for MI.

I don't know how accurate that map is because I have 20 -40 deer each hunt forget the square mile.

I know there are some inaccuracies in that map. My areas hold much more deer than they are saying.
