You hit on it in your next to last sentence. Forest is not as good of habitat as farmland.

East TN will never support as large of a deer population as middle and wtn due to poorer habitat.
Yep,was my first thought

How much land are you hunting? Sounds like you are are on a small tract of timber with not much on it to attract or hold deer.

19 acres, mostly woods with big hollows, my neighbor across from me has 119 acres that goes over to Marrowbone Lake area

mostly all acorns, and underbrush the deer can munch on...no farmland really around, too hilly...

Would be VERY easy to overhunt 19 acres,be careful,deer will avoid human intrusion,and go nocturnal quick

Are you saying 19 acres was hunted 33 days in a row or was it another place that was hunted by your FIL 33 days in a row? Even with 30 times that amount of land, thats a ton of hunting pressure.

West Tn. definetly holds a high number of deer. On the farm I hunt it has 90 acres agriculture land. The farmer in the past has tried to plant soybeans but with no luck. The last 2 years he planted them he tried twice each year with the deer completly eating them up. He was never able to even put a combine in the field. The second year he tried he took 62 deer off of it during the summer the last time I had talked to him. Still he wasn't able to put a combine in the field. With all the agriculture in the area and adaquate amount of cover these areas are literally filled up with deer. Thats why also alot of us around her are more selective in killing larger bucks. There's not that much problem at all to kill a legal buck anymore because of the high numbers. I couldn't tell you the last time I've been hunting and haven't seen a deer.
