Bachelor bay GL, J Morgan Futch GL, Bullard and branch and Roanoke island marshes had zero deer harvested on them.

There are many GL that I have hunted that has single digit harvests every year. One of them is my favorite "mountain" GL and we're usually about the only ones that kill deer there except @appmtnhntr and his buddies. They're probably some that get killed by road hunters up there too. I don't mind hunting places with low density or tough terrain as long as I can get away from people.

I’m with you on this one. I’ve actually leaned more towards the tougher the better because I’ve usually got the place to myself

You ought to see some of the places @Lowg08 hunts. He’s a billy goat.

It is hard for me to believe there were more deer killed in Forsyth County than in Gates County, unless I am looking at it wrong. Good Grief, how things have changed. The deer hunting was great in Gates when there was not even a season in Forsyth.
Check out Bertie reported kills. About half of what it used to be. Deer numbers are down as well as turkeys in my area.

Gates and Bertie had good deer hunting 40 and 50 years ago when the Piedmont was nearly barren. There are lots of things I don't understand.

Hunters in eastern NC did not want either-sex days (gun, bow or blackpowder) reduced, at least when the WRC was surveying deer hunters a few years ago.

They wanted to keep seasons maximum even if deer populations were down.

So the WRC lowered the antlerless limit instead (6 to 4) and got rid of the bonus tags.

The WRC biologists claimed it was time to back off some on doe harvests in northeast NC.

Maybe we should restrict method of take for deer. I vote for 3 years of no dog hunting, no center fires and no baiting, limit one buck and 2 does. Also no gun hunting until Dec 1. Don’t want to be killing bucks during peak breeding.

No center fires would lead to a lot of wounded deer because people would be using .22 .22 mag and .17s

limit rifle season to a shotgun season

Shoot. I got visited during something bruin and blocked in my driveway for 2 hours and hadn’t owned a dog in 5 years. They wanted to know who I was paying to hide my dogs. Where was I hiding them. Who I was hunting with now. Because they hadn’t ran into me. Apparently the answer well no crap because I quit was wrong. Finally had to submit a harassment charge through my lawyer. I suspended it when the judge told them to leave us alone. They had put us through enough.

Now as far as the Deer #s …. I admit I was wrong in the Turkey decline thread

“I predicted it would be fall before this started about the deer… it’s only May”😉😂🤪🤔
