    Easily.
    They don’t call them “Woods Rats” out here without reason.

    So, the final numbers are in for the muzzle loader Season.
    An additional 6,896 deer were harvested.
    Plus, Antler-less Only Season just concluded, adding another 9,319 deer to the tally.
    So the 2018 Total Harvest to date is 316,927 deer.

    But lest you think this is the end of the story, there is a Holiday Bonus Season where each County is allowed to decide if their local population has been sufficiently culled for the Year. If not, there is nothing like some Peppermint Schnaps to put the icing on the cake during the Bonus Hunt!

    Incredible! That's almost 2 deer culled from each and every square kilometer of the entire state! (and also a lot of people into their muzzle loaders)

    2018 census shows approx. 5.8 million people divided by 317K deer harvested = 1 deer for every 18 people? Is my math right? I am never good at statistics... good on the muzzle loaders though. How many freezers in Wisconsin?

    I have had the misfortune of three deer collisions in Northern Wisconsin, two in SUVs, and one on a motorcycle.
    On all three occasions, a passer by stopped almost immediately to see if I/we was OK.
    Each time, the second question, which followed quickly, was “Can I Have The Deer?

    Plenty of freezers in these parts...

    Ouch on the deer collisions. I've come close but never had contact (as he knocks on wood). A family could probably survive on road kill around there. As long as some stuff fell of a vegetable truck to balance the diet. Thinking back, I saw at least one carcass at the side of the road per day on my trip to North Carolina and back as well as a few spots... where there was just a large dark spot denoting a recent strike. It's a wonder any of us get to a ripe old age, not saying I'm there yet by any means either.
