White-tailed Deer Population Estimate

Categories

In 1930, there were 300,000 deer species in the United States. Today, there are approximately 30 million white-tailed deer roaming across America; and they are causing crop damage on landscapes along the way. Some states are having a worse time than others managing deer populations and movement on lands; but of course, land use, agriculture production and location are factors. Homeowners residing in urban settings tend not to have as much of a problem than in rural areas.

Based on 2015 deer populations estimates from North American Whitetail Magazine, here are the worse deer states to live:
