    crappiedude, Harry1959 and cane pole like this.
  2. Beautiful weather first day has a lot to do with it I'd say
     

  3. Anyone know what counties were hit with EHD this year?
    It would be interesting to see the numbers and differences from 16 vs 17.
     
  4. Jefferson was one. And it was down 100 deer surprised it was not more.

  5. Not sure about everyone else but the numbers surprised me based on the amount of orange I saw while I was out.
     
  6. Surprised as well(that it was this high what with the full moon and sunny opener)! Seems more groups are forming for drives from opening til closing day. Used to be there was little driving til at least mid-week then it picked up(certain ethnic group being the exception).
     
  7. Its
    It is half of last year when you take into account bow kill numbers. The county was hammered by EHD
     
  8. Looking back at the original EHD thread it looks like Belmont may have been another county that was hit hard. This years harvest is down 45 from last year in Belmont.
     
  9. My inlaws own some land in Belmont we as a family hunt, just south of Bethesda / barkcamp state park area and deer herd took another significant hit this year. Hardly saw anything hunting , trail cams had nice deer early then everything vanished. It was hit hard in 2012 and it was just starting to rebound..... had some nice deer on cams.

    My buddy was working on the gas pipeline project South of Bergholz. and he told me that in mid-Summer they were dodging all kinds of deer on the road. When it got to late Summer everything changed. Suddenly, there were no deer!
