Deer Populations In NC Rebound So Much...

...that many suburban towns are turning to additional bow and arrow-only seasons to handle the localized overpopulation problems.

This is less a reflection of successful conservation techniques than it is a reflection of urbanized populations. 100 years ago the number of people living in rural areas was proportionally higher than it is today, and hunting has always been a rural pastime. Percentage-wise there are far fewer hunters in the USA in 2013 than there were in 1913.

I could sit on my front porch and kill them with the smack of a sledge hammer they are so thick around my house. And so unafraid.
