Its not uncommon at all to see multiple bucks everytime you go out. It slows down as season goes along but 3,4,5,or more bucks a day is not uncommon at all in some places. I can't recall a time on stand in years not seeing a deer at all. And I hunt just about everyday from muzzleloader season on.

Those are amazingly high deer sights bbuck14.

-DRM- and others,

I think county by county regs would be the only chance of "fixing" some small scale problem areas, but I wonder if even that is small-scale enough. Pockets within counties can be great or poor.


I said counties because that is IMHO about as localized as you can go and still keep it somewhat understandable to the average hunter...

But then again, I'm not really sure anything needs "fixing", so I'm just musing conceptual stuff here with you guys.

BSK you probably wouldn't believe me if I gave some real figures. I'm being on the conservative side saying 3-5 bucks at a time. Sometimes its alot more then that.

I am not sure BSK how you can determine the number of deer in a square mile without actually counting them. I would say your only guessing myself. I sat one afternoon and counted 39 in one group in a field I was watching and on another occasion had 21 in one 5 acre field and 17 of them were bucks. This was on property in southern unit L with a mixture of harwoods and ag land.

we have farms around maury county in santa fe hickman county and giles county. and for the most part its not un common to see 10-15 deer a sit the most ive seen in a sit is 67. but we have hardwoods ag fields and all the goodies. but I know some that only see 1-5 deer like bsk says. it just depends on the farm. gotta have plenty of food plenty of cover and water and for the most part that in the long run will give you more deer density. imo. but all of this doesn't happen over night lots of time and a whole lot of work. but some farms just cant and some just for some reason don't hold a lot of deer.

Thats what I'm talking about. Unit L in my area is full of deer. I have seen as many as 21 bucks in one day, which isn't the norm but not uncommon. Most of my friends all hunt different farms scattered all around many miles apart in which we all manage for big deer. And its the same for all of us. I know in 4 days 4 of us killed 42 does off one farm one year. The last one I shot was in a group of 17.

You guys are lucky at least seeing deer like that helps pass the time. Wish we could get a deer heard like that here in the eastern part of the state

First, remember that "deer per square mile" numbers only work when you're talking about large areas; i.e. areas tens of square miles in size. And even then, each square mile won't have the same number of deer at any given time, and deer move around. A deer may cover several square miles over a few days time, or a few months time. Basically, deer density numbers are averages over large areas.

And by the way, the TWRA has counted them! In a round about sort of way. They ran thermal imager counts all over the state a couple of years ago and got very accurate density numbers that worked out for several years in a row. I would say my estimates (based on their data and my camera census data) is pretty close to "average" for those areas.
