Pretty common to see around a 10% decline in population due to EHD. Some properties much worse. But antler development per age-class is excellent this year.

I'm seeing about 40% to 50% less deer. Reminds me of late 70'S early 80's hunting.

I would make any decisions by what you see with your own eyes. I would look more towards trail-camera pictures over the long-haul (not just a week or two of pictures).

Quit trying to jump em up and hunt them. They're gonna cycle around the range as their food sources change.
