Deer/car crash data. Some states us nothing but deer car crash data, other states use this data to double check other data. You are correct in saying SAK does not work with EAB and T zone/ herd control hunts. These hunts actually gave an opposite answer to reality, making the herd estimate numbers go up instead of down. Mix in the predation numbers of 40,000 bears instead of 13,000 bears and some areas there maybe no deer left while the SAK estimates 36% above goal. Errors in deer mortality rates, over winter kill and even hunters cheating the EAB system have all played parts in the deer population colapse.
