Deer Populations

deerbusters logoIn 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 estimates of the worse deer states to live:

1) Georgia: 1.2 million
2) Oklahoma: 500,000
3) Colorado: 25,000
4) Iowa: 400,000.
5) South Dakota: 300,000
6) Alabama: 1.8 million
7) Nebraska: 375,000
8) North Dakota: 90,000
9) Arkansas: 1.1 million
10) Wyoming: 60,000
11) Indiana: 1 million
12) Texas: 4 million
13) Kansas: 650,000
14) Kentucky: 900,000
15) Illinois: 850,000
16) Mississippi: 1.8 million
17) Ohio: 800,000
18) Wisconsin: 1.2 million
19) Missouri: 1.3 million
20) Minnesota: 1 million
