Pennsylvania hunters killed antlered white-tailed deer per square mile in , according to the Whitetail Report from the Quality Deer Management Association.

Only Michigan and South Carolina saw more bucks harvested per square mill in , with hunters taking and , respectively.

Pennsylvania’s buck harvest was higher than the averages of all northeastern states, bucks per square mile; southeastern states, ; and midwestern states,

On the antlerless side of the ledger in , Pennsylvania hunters harvested doe per square mile, second only to Delaware at

Again, in Pennsylvania’s doe harvest per square mile topped the averages for all northeastern states, ; southeastern states, ; and midwestern states,

QDMA found that Pennsylvania hunters turned in the top overall harvest at deer per square mile.

“White-tailed deer are the most important game species in North America,” noted Rick Watts, president of QDMA’s Pennsylvania State Advisory Council. “More hunters pursue whitetails than any other species and whitetail hunters contribute more financially than any other type of hunter. Collectively speaking, whitetails are the foundation of the entire hunting industry, and this is especially true in Pennsylvania.

“A quick comparison to other states clearly shows how successful Pennsylvania’s deer management program is.”

Pennsylvania is one of only four states where hunters kill more than , white-tailed deer each year.

According to the QDMA report, the top states in for buck harvest were Texas, ,; Michigan, ,; Wisconsin, ; Pennsylvania, ,; and Missouri, ,

The states with the greatest antlered harvest per deer hunters in were South Carolina, 79; Texas, 69; Mississippi, 64; Maryland, 50; and Florida, Pennsylvania saw 21 bucks harvested per deer hunters.

States with the largest increase in buck harvest over the five-year average were Texas, 37 percent; Nebraska, 36 percent; New Jersey, 24 percent; Oklahoma, 24 percent; and Massachusetts, 22 percent. Pennsylvania’s buck harvest was 5 percent over the five-year average.

More top-five rankings from the QDMA report were as follows.

Lowest percentage of yearling bucks in the buck harvest: Arkansas, 9; Florida, 11; Mississippi, 11; Louisiana, 13; and Alabama, Pennsylvania,

Highest percentage of yearling bucks in the buck harvest: Wisconsin, 53; Maryland, 42; Massachusetts, 41; New York, 41; and Illinois,

Pennsylvania’s deer harvest estimates released

Pennsylvania hunters killed more deer in than at any other time in the last 15 years.

So says the Pennsylvania Game Commission, which released deer harvest estimates March

The total take was , That was up by 4 percent over the year before, and the biggest kill since , when hunters took ,

Driving last year’s harvest was an uptick in the buck kill.

According to the commission, hunters killed , antlered deer, an increase of 10 percent over the harvest of ,

That’s not far off the highest take since the advent of antler restrictions. That was ,

“One of the highlights of the deer harvest was deer hunters continue to experience antlered harvest success levels comparable to historic highs in the late s and early s,” noted Christopher Rosenberry, the commission’s deer and elk section supervisor. “In recent years, about 17 to 18 percent of all hunters harvested an antlered deer, and we look for this trend to continue.

Roughly 66 percent of those bucks were at least 2&#; years old, Rosenberry said.

Meanwhile, hunters last year killed , antlerless deer. That includes 10, taken with chronic wasting disease deer management assistance program, or DMAP, permits.

That was on par with recent seasons. Hunters killed , does in and , in

About 69 percent of the doe harvest was made up of adult antlerless deer. Button bucks accounted for 16 percent of the take, and doe fawns the remaining 15 percent.

The harvest was not equitable across all wildlife management units.

The state has The doe harvest was down in about half of them. Things dropped furthest — by 39 percent — in unit 2H, in the northcentral part of the state. It declined 23 percent in 3A, also in the northern tier, and 20 percent in 1B, in the northwest region.

Continuing a long-term trend, archers accounted for a significant part of the overall harvest. They killed 74, bucks and 71, does.

That’s about one-third of the total take.

GAME COMMISSION RELEASES DEER HARVEST REPORT

March 19, PGC News

Buck harvest up 10 percent, overall harvest highest in 15 years.

Pennsylvania hunters posted their highest overall deer harvest in 15 years when they took , deer during the state’s hunting seasons, which closed in January, the Pennsylvania Game Commission reported today.

The deer harvest topped the previous year’s harvest of , by about 4 percent. The last time the total deer harvest exceeded this season’s total was in , when , whitetails were taken.

The statewide buck harvest saw a generous bump of 10 percent, coming in at , In the seasons, , bucks were taken. In the preceding license year, , bucks were harvested. The largest harvest in the antler-restrictions era – , – occurred in the first year.

“One of the highlights of the deer harvest was deer hunters continue to experience antlered harvest success levels comparable to historic highs in the late s and early s,” noted Christopher Rosenberry, Game Commission Deer and Elk Section supervisor. “In recent years, about 17 to 18 percent of all hunters harvested an antlered deer, and we look for this trend to continue.

The antlerless deer harvest over the seasons was ,, which includes 10, taken with chronic wasting disease Deer Management Assistance Program permits. The overall antlerless deer harvest was ,, which was about 10 percent larger than the harvest of ,

Except on Deer Management Assistance Program properties and in Wildlife Management Areas 2B, 5B and 5D, antlerless deer hunting with firearms doesn’t begin until the first Saturday of deer rifle season. That has limited antlerless deer hunting to seven of the rifle season’s 13 days.

Still, hunters took a good number of antlerless deer, mirroring the antlerless deer harvest.

“Keeping harvest pressure on antlerless deer is critical in our ongoing efforts to address the risk of chronic wasting disease (CWD), particularly in Disease Management Areas,” explained Rosenberry. “That hunters took over 10, antlerless deer with DMA DMAP permits illustrates the cooperation we need from deer hunters to help whitetails where CWD threats are at their greatest in Penn’s Woods.”

Across the 23 Wildlife Management Units (WMUs) used by the Game Commission to manage whitetails, the antlerless deer harvest decreased in almost half of them. The largest harvest declines occurred in WMU 2H, 39 percent, WMU 3A, 23 percent and WMU 1B, 20 percent.

WMUs posting the largest antlerless deer harvest increases were WMU 3B, 23 percent; WMU 4D, 21 percent; and WMU 4B, 20 percent.

On the antlered deer side of WMU-level harvests, the buck harvest dropped in only three units: WMUs 2C, 2H and 5D. The largest increases in antlered deer harvest were in WMU 2G, 29 percent; WMU 3C, 22 percent; WMU 4C, 21 percent; and WMU 3A, 19 percent.

The percentage of older bucks in the deer harvest remained amazingly high. About 66 percent of the bucks taken by hunters were at least 2½ years old. The remainder were 1½ years old.

“Pennsylvania deer hunters consistently continue to take 2½-year and older bucks over younger antlered bucks – by a two-to-one margin – in the Commonwealth,” said Game Commission Executive Director Bryan Burhans. “If you hunted deer before antler restrictions, you know how significant this is. Most of us have waited a lifetime for deer hunting like Pennsylvania has today!

“The whitetail bucks roaming Penn’s Woods today are a product of an intensely managed deer herd,” Burhans noted. “But their existence also hinged on the willingness of deer hunters to sacrifice shooting spikes and small fork-horns for bucks with substantially more headgear!” 

About 69 percent of the antlerless deer harvest was adult females; button-bucks comprised 16 percent and doe fawns made up 15 percent. In the seasons, adult females comprised 66 percent of the antlerless deer harvest.

Bowhunters accounted for about a third of Pennsylvania’s overall deer harvest, taking , deer (74, bucks and 71, antlerless deer) with either bows or crossbows. The archery buck harvest was 54,, while the archery antlerless deer harvest was 56,; unseasonably warm weather and rain impacted many fall bowhunting days in

“That bowhunters added 35, more deer to the overall archery deer harvest suggests bowhunters continue to improve their harvest success,” Rosenberry said. “Overall, though, bowhunters still are responsible for about a third of the statewide overall deer harvest, which is similar to the seasons.” 

The muzzleloader harvest – 29, – was up from to the previous year’s harvest of 23, The muzzleloader harvest included 1, antlered bucks compared to 1, bucks in the seasons.
