The last number I got was around Christmas, 480. The last time the kill numbers were that low, was 488 in 1985. That is roughly down by two thirds of what it should be. I really wonder if the herd will ever come back that strong in less than 10 years.

Anderson Co was way down a few weeks ago as well. I think it's safe to say Anderson, Union, Campbell, Scott, and Morgan got pounded with ehd. Overall probably down 40% in those counties.

Seems it was down state wide .
Haven't seen very many deer in south east Bradley county at all.wish twra would stop with all the doe tags . Certain ehd has took a toll.
Killed one deer , a buck with busted hooves. So for sure it had survived ehd.

The processor in Morgan county he told me that he was at about half. He also pointed out that he had seen a lot of really young deer brought in. I saw more deer this season around my house then I did in the mountains where I hunt. Found a really nice one in the mountains that had died back in August I suppose. I think that the EHD really took a toll on them in certain spots.

The whole multi county area needs a re-evaluation of the regs.

Fentress went from 972 last year to 591 this year at this time. Basically a 40% decrease. And yet people were still shooting does in rifle. Real smart.

Lake Cumberland. Not me catching unfortunately, I ain't got my KY license this year. Thinking on it. Some are catching 10 to 15 a trip, some as shallow as 8ft. LC has always been a good crappie fishery. Fished it every year from 1990 to 2006.
