"Antlerless harvest for the same two weeks declined l0 percent from last year's figures and later tallies of the number of Class N licenses sold will determine if this decline indicates a decline in hunters or a decrease of antledess deer." The antlerless deer har- vest during the 2004 concurrent two- week buck season was 42,537, compared with 47,064 in 2003. The decrease in this year's buck kill is related to the success of an overall deer herd reduction in counties exceeding their population objectives, which are ex- plained in the Division of Natural Re,- sources' While,-tailed Deer Operational Plan. In 2003, the deer population ex- ceeded desired population levels in 27 counties, which represented 40 percent of the deer habitat in the state. The pre- liminary data of 2004 indicate deer popu- lations exceeded objectives in 22 coun- ties or 29 percent of the deer habitat in the state. "Progress is being made in balancing our state's deer herd," accord- ing to Curtis I. Taylor, Chief of the Wild- life Resources Section. "We will analyze this year's buck, antlerless, bow and muzzleloader harvest information for each county in the upcoming months before making recommendations for next year's deer season." The harvest of antlerless deer is the key to healthier and heavier deer herds. This is because there are natural limits to the number of deer the land can support. When these natural limits are exceeded, deer body weights, reproductive rates, antler development, and herd health de- clines, including an increased likelihood that deer will die over winter. If deer exceed natural limits long enough, habitat quality is reduced, pro- ducing a long-term reduction in the natu- ral limit of deer the land can support. Hunters and landowners can avoid these problems by participating and encourag- ing a reasonable antlerless deer harvest. Hamriek reminds hunters that the tra- ditional six-day antledess deer season in selected counties on both public and pri- vate land ends December 11. The Youth and Class Q antlerless season will open on Monday and Tuesday December 27 and 28 and will be followed by a three- day reopening of antledess deer season (December 29-31) on private land in selected counties. Muzzleloader deer season begins December 13 and runs through D~cember lg. See related editorial about Gilmer County's deer hunt on page 3A.
