This isn't going to be pretty to look at but you can see the comparison. Copied from an excel spreadsheet. Totals are up 10,000 from last year.

I’d say its the reporting. There are still plenty of folk who don’t bother. I know one guy that shot over thirty and didn’t report any.

I mentioned it to him as he left red dirt tracks to the beer cooler then argued with the clerk over an item on his receipt marked “Tax”, which he said he didn’t purchase and ain’t in the bag.

reporting sure as hell ain't up, the kill is WAY up from last year. Just ask ANY processor how this year compared to last year. WAY up.

So, then, what does THAT mean? Are there more deer? Are deer hunters less selective? Maybe it was weather? I still can't wrap my head around what more dead deer mean.

Well if you look at Dallas and Baldwin Counties, both counties I frequently hunt in, both counties that have a noticeable increase in deer harvested this year than last, both counties had almost no acorns so the deer naturally flocked to food plots. Both counties last year had a great acorn crop. That's my theory anyway. Deer had less food so they had to move more and thus got themselves kilt because of it.

I cant speak for anyone else, but our club killed half as many deer this year as last.

I’m lowering my opinion of % of deer reported after this year. 25% max imo in Lamar and surrounding counties.

I am trying to evaluate this also.
The info seems inconsistent.
And a little odd.
It doesn't make sense that there would be a big jump in deer kills from one year to the next.
Certainly, the reporting does not show such a jump at all.

can ya'll spell C-O-R-N? no one thinks the extreme widespread use of corn skewed the results at all?

It sure as hell wasn't an increase in reporting when every processor I talked to had a huge increase in deer brought in. SOMEBODY was killing them.

Duh, they're insinuating it's the corn. I don't buy it. I think more people are reporting. Maybe there are less processors out there so every one is getting more? Maybe more people decided to take their deer to processors instead of deal with it themselves? The numbers aren't really that different in Pike county where I hunt - 235 more deer killed pretty insignificant. The fact is nobody knows for sure and it's all just speculation. Going to have to see the numbers year over year after reporting has been in place for a while. So if the number go up again next year, still the corn? What about if they go down?

I hunt in Chambers and there were 111 less deer "reported killed" this year than last.

I have no idea what that means but there's a bunch of land and a bunch of hunting going on around here.

Tried to make it more readable(not sure it worked b/c the text is smaller) and I added a column to show the difference.
