West Virginia is atleast 1/2 the size of Pennsylvania and has 1/2 as many hunters with almost 10% more woods per a square mile more than Pennsylvania.
I was reading this article today in the Register Herald and was thinking about how our local economies would be affected by the hunters when they quit going north to hunt for the first couple of days of deer season.
Their season starts tomorrow so they put these articles in their papers this week.
I didn't put this article in because I wanted to down grade the hunting in Pennsylvania - I mearly wanted to show you that there are states that still manage deer the way we did and are still having a pretty good harvest. They seem to be concerned about the hunters and not just the insurance companies.
We seem to be loosing our hunting woods at a incredible rate to urban sprawl and to people that owned property that lets their kids build - right on the farm - until there is nothing left to hunt anymore.
Just a note - to all you archery hunters. They have 4 counties that are archery hunting only.
