The Pennsylvania Game Commission has reported that hunters killed an estimated 343,110 deer during the 2012-13 season, an increase of about 2 percent over the previous year. Hunters shot 133,860 bucks and 209,250 antlerless deer. In my home state of Virginia, 213,597 deer were reported shot, including 96,712 antlered bucks, 18,061 button bucks and 98,781 does. The 2012 kill was down 8% from the previous year. Post your state’s harvest data from last season so we can build a database and see and compare figures. Looking back, how was your season? Was the kill up or down? Your observations as to why?

As I told you in this post last month I am really into wild hogs for some reason right now, so when this picture popped up on my Facebook I got intrigued: …a Turkish wild boar weighing in at 781 lbs. I'm sure one of these things could do damage if it got a hold of you!  Immediately people started questioning the hog’s veracity: the guy is sitting way behind it, that’s why it looks so big…Turkish hogs only get to 200 pounds or so…it’s a Russian boar, but they top out at 600… I have no idea, but look at the boar’s front hoof—it’s bigger than the guy’s head and body! I’m sure the pig is real, but something [...]
