When are we seriously going to cull the deer population as they are doing further south on the E. Coast? They are also culling the turkey population that is becoming invasive. I guess there may be more folks that are interested in culling their predators such as coyotes, but it should at least be considered.

FYI. This is actively monitored and managed by the state even if their definition of healthy population may be greater than what others’ opinions might be. Personally < 100K deer in the state seems like very little to me considering there are over 6.5 million humans.

Perhaps you’re right. OTOH it sometimes feels as if we have a 100k deer in the forest at the top of Pine Hill Road. From time to time a dozen or so appear in our yard. The turkeys are becoming uncountable. The increase in Lyme disease is troubling. Of course, I’ve had Lyme, but that is not why I suggest culling.
