Not an expert on the subject but it seems population is way up. Day doesn't go by you don't see a fresh carcas laying beside the road. In the more populated urban/residential areas deer are getting to be a major problem. All but imposible to grown vegi or flower gardens.

The hunting is hit and miss. Depends on weather and food supply. Bad summer weather and low food supply the deer seem to move more and hunters benefit. Good summer weather and plenty for them to eat. They stay deeper in the woods and hunters can't find them.

They started stocking elk in Kentucky. Rumor has it they're starting to cross into WV in the southern counties. That should be interesting when that population grows.
