So I'm looking at The Hunters Toolbox and checking Pres Island results from last year. 380 Hunters and only five Deer! that's it?? 2011 was seven, prior to that it was 30 to 40. Number of Hunters hasn't changed that much.

Something seems amiss with those numbers, like maybe last few years are buck only kills while the 30-40 kill years are buck and doe. I'd have to look at the data to form a better conclusion, but my initial reply would be my first guess. I can promise the hunters have never killed 30-40 bucks on PI & Ensley combined in a single weekend with a bow.

You are correct, that was "Total" harvest numbers. But still huge drop in numbers last couple of years.

5 bucks perhaps, but there are usually 10-20 deer killed each day on the doe hunts.

I think the best year had a success rate of about 25%. That's out of the 80 buck hunters. I think it averages closer to 10-15%.

Sightings definitely dropped after the flood, but that should be about back to normal. In 2010, I saw 40-50 deer on the hunt. 2011 was rough -maybe 78 or 8 sightings. 2012 was noticeably better with more like 20 sightings. I did the doe hunts for 3 or 4 years in a row, just started putting in for the buck hunt this year.
