TWRA posts that almost 177K deer were killed in 2102-2013 season and when you look at the counties, all are east of I-65 with the exception of two...

Montgomery County ranked 7th, and I can see that because of Ft. Campbell; Maury County ranked 6th, and that is usually a deer haven. Williamson county dropped out of the top 13, even though it borders Maury...Giles county was number 1 along the Alabama border, with bordering Lincoln county coming in 5th and Franklin county coming in 8th.

But the vast majority are in West TN east of Perry county, and why do these counties have such good deer production and its the same ones every year; Weakley, Henry, Carroll, Madison, Fayette, Hardeman, Hardin.

Why is there not as many deer taken in East Tennessee, when you look at the amount of forest there, you would think it would be higher...

Opening this up for discussion...
