Anyone got an estimate on local deer density? To cut Lyme transmission cycles would need <8 per sq mile. Seems unlikely given that they seem to be everywhere.

Deer aside, was sitting around late pm a couple of weeks ago and a 200+lb black bear walks past my window not 10ft away. Apparently its the baby.

The guy managing the SWIG grant says 30-40/square mile on the ridge.

The DEC's new forest management plan cites 6-7/square mile where ecosystem damage begins to occur.

They'll be very happy.

It's an awesome way to use one more part of the animal.

Good luck!


Mim i have not done the hide but the skull and antlers. We just used table salt a lot of salt on the skull and let it sit for a few days. One time my Dad and i were sawing the top of the skull off so we could hang the antlers. the brains fell on the ground and our dog came up and ate the brains right up.

at least you didn't hurl up deer brains. I hear they taste worse coming back up then they do going down.

Yes. When it comes to his dog eating deer brain -- waste not, want not. The dog got good nourishment and there was one less body part to dispose of.

You're forgetting the risk that the dog might contract mad deer disease.
