Thanks for you comments at Country Captures. You ask about Pa’s deer.

The Pa Game Commission did make a serious attempt to reduce the deer herd beginning a few years ago. The effort was successful to a degree and it depends upon point of view as to how successful it has been.

Deer numbers were reduced to where hunters complained bitterly with one hunting organization attempting to sue the commission for reducing the herd too much.

DCNR and many farm/forest owners on the other hand wanted to see the herd reduced further.

Today the management goal across most of the state is to maintain the population near to the current numbers.
