              • Word on the street here in IA is deer numbers are way down this year. We definately didn't see the numbers we saw just 3-4 years ago. Iowa DNR needs to reduce the number of antlerless tags, and get rid of the January rifle season.

                As of this post, only 98133 deer have been reported according to the DNR reporting website. Although that number is probably much higher as some people do not report their kill. Then add to that what EHD did this summer in the southern half of the state, where people would find 20-30 dead deer in 1/2-1 mile stretches of a creek or river...

                I know there was at least 10 for sure taken off of our farm, plus a couple more probably.. Next year might be rough..

                  Sorry to hear that RS but it's a similar situation in lots of places from what I hear. I haven't heard early kill reports from here in Virginia but hunters all over the state are not seeing deer in the same numbers as the past few. The northeast part of the state took a pretty hard EHD hit and deer numbers in the mountainous west have been steadily dropping for years. Most likely due in large part to fawn predation from an increasing coyote population. They definitely need to address the issue...soon!

                        I imagine that the British (when they ruled India) did way too much uncontrolled hunting. Especially the tigers. Tis a shame.

                          Plenty of tigers left after India gained independence in 1948, what caused the tiger population crash was habitat destruction and poaching for the Chinese medicine industry.

                                Every year. Not the old muskets, but modern in-line muzzleloaders are one of the most popular firearms for deer these days. States often have special ML seasons just for these weapons and they often coincide with the rut.
