But, if that's just a third of the reports, according to what we've been told, it's really more like 285,000. Right?

And that kind of jibes with the numbers from the olden days of the estimates and statistically valid post-season survey sent to hunters. A survey that was discounted as not being any good.

I think the rampant use of corn skewed the numbers away from a normal pre-corn year.


I've spent most of the money I've made in my lifetime on hunting and fishing. The rest I just wasted.....

Nearly every processor I talked to this year said they had taken in more deer this year than they ever had.

My son says Kens in Autaugaville had more deer than he had ever seen in the 3 or 4 years he worked there in high school. They talked him into helping out a few days due to the glut.

We didn’t kill very many deer this season but I would bet our number of sightings more them doubled. Most due to corn but even in areas we hunt without corn saw more deer this year. LOTS of does and yearlings.

There were about 30,000 deer brought into a few processors in 4 Counties in northwest AL alone.

So gamecheck compliance is WAY down.

I didn’t say it was down. I’ve never thought compliance was high. I hope it gets better.

I think we need a new app to report whether or not hunters are using the GameCheck App. That way we can really get good, quality data beers

So if they estimate that only 35% of Hunters reported their kills, wouldn’t our total harvest be somewhere around 157,106 bucks and113,663 does?

Of course that is all hypothetical but one thing that appears to stand out is that we have killed many more bucks than does. It reminds me of the numbers from when we had doe days. I wonder how many will be beating the drum to lower the buck harvest per hunter?


Our greatest fear should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don't really matter.

I never thought compliance was high either.... which is why I said it was down. I guess that was poor phrasing on my part and I should said game check compliance is very low.

I also hope it gets better but I doubt it will.

I killed two deers and hauled off another ten that got killed on the road.
Two got gamechecked.

I am HUGE into changing the buck limit. I don't care what # they set but set a # on bucks more reasonable. Approximately 120 bucks per year, legally, with only 3 being antlered is totally contradictory to what the program (recording) was started as in 2007. It was meant to get a better age structure meaning getting more bucks to older age. Allowing 117 knob heads per hunter, per season makes absolutely no sense. I want someone to explain how killing knob heads will get more older age bucks.

As I said, I don't care where they set the limit but make it a BUCK limit.

The nice folks at Cumberland Mountain on Skyline told me they took in over 700. And that’s impressive numbers considering it’s a small town and right up the road from Martin.

Exactly how is a hunter, that's looking for meat, gonna know that the small deer at 200 yards in a button head or doe? Hunters should be able to shoot what they want and not have to satisfy every big rack management wannabe that comes along. IF Alabama DCNR wanted to implement a season to grow older bucks the season would be cut down to just a few weeks total, or LESS. Throw that out there and see what it gets you.

The long AL deer season is by far the most detrimental thing to the AL deer herd.
