This is a simple ? I posing....in the areas that it is imperative to kill as many doe as possible.....Hunter hunter "A" kills all the doe they possibly can...tags provided...then with in a square mile area surrounding Hunter "A" All the hunters Kill all the doe they can ..tags available....The predator population then explodes...with all the fresh gut piles in the area...come spring birthing time ...predators are still in the area.....how many hunting seasons does anyone think it would take to devastate the deer herd in that and the surrounding ..say five mile area?
Yes, most public areas around me do not keep positive records of harvests. They usually have a sign in and out sheet (no attendant) that you are suppose note what you shot. How many hunters list what they did shoot is questionable. Some forget in the excitment, Some do not want others to know it's a good area etc.

Apparently you must not have a problem with (coyotes) by you. At least I don't recall you saying so. If so you are lucky.
Ive hunted Ohio twice on a friends farm, He had told me the same thing TO MANY deer.
If that was the case why is it that Ohio only has a total of 11 days general gun, 9 days muzz. you would think they would open gun alittle longer to take care of the overpopulation. Now they have along archery season 4-1/4 months I think it was, and on top of that why only 1 buck then? If a area is over run with deer open the season strickly for that one animal earlier, and allow hunters to harvest only does then, not while they are breeding and pregnant, Im sure they would find alot of hunters willing to ride that horse..
