BK 2019 DEER FORECAST: LICENSED BOWHUNTERS ARE EXPERIENCING THE BEST OF TIMES ALL ACROSS NORTH AMERICA.

FIRST OFF, let me personally offer a sincere thank you to all the state and provincial biologists who helped compile the data for this year's "Deer Forecast."

Although hunter numbers have been decreasing for decades, since 2001, bowhunter numbers across North America have increased 19.1%. This year's "Deer Forecast" recorded the second highest number of bowhunters (3,683,446) throughout North America. Although hard to actually prove, this increase in growth is most likely linked to the expansion of crossbows into the various state archery seasons.

Pennsylvania reports more licensed bowhunters than anyone at 330,900. Michigan (311,155), Wisconsin (228,856), Missouri (240,529), and New York (228,974) round out the top five. These five states make up 36.5% of all bowhunters in North America.

"This year we asked, "What percentage of successful hunters use crossbows in the archery season harvest?" Michigan leads this category with 67.8% of the archery harvest. This is followed by Ohio (65.9%), Pennsylvania (62.9%), New Jersey (61%), Wisconsin (53.9%), and Maryland (53.3%). Eight states now have an archery season harvest of 50% or more made up of crossbow kills.

Three states (Michigan, Ohio, and Pennsylvania) have nearly two-thirds of their total archer) harvest made up of crossbow kills. Why does this occur? It may simply be the easiest and quickest way to harvest a deer before the army of firearms hunters enter the woods and the deer turn nocturnal. In any case, these statistics are evidence that the inclusion of crossbows in the archer) season has had a major impact.

Bowhunters in North America took 1,292,455 whitetails, mule deer, and blacktails during the 2018-2019 hunting season. The total archer) harvest across North America has increased 24.4% from 10 years ago.

Compared to last year, the total number of deer roaming North America has increased to 30,985,452 reported whitetails, blacktails, and mule deer (IL, IN, FL, MI, ND, OH, and PA do not report this data). This figure is up by 1.42 million deer from last year. T he good news is that North America's deer herds have only had minor outbreaks of epizootic hemorrhagic disease (FHD) over the last six years.

As usual, Texas has more deer than anyone, with over 5.37 million whitetails. This is followed by Wisconsin (1.90 million), Mississippi (1.48 million), Alabama (1.40 million), and Georgia (1.27 million). These five states equate to 42.2% of the total number of whitetails reported in North America.

An increase of 245,033 harvested deer was tallied (all weapons) in North America during the 2018-2019 hunting season. Overall, hunters tagged a total of 6,617,534 deer.

Once again, Michigan bowhunters harvested more deer than any other state, with 137,059 whitetails taken. This is followed by Pennsylvania (109,940), Texas (96,636), Wisconsin (87,629), Ohio (79,098), and Illinois (61,096).

This year's archery success rate across North America has remained constant at 22%. Kansas bowhunters were the most successful, with a remarkable 49% success rate. Following close behind are Mississippi (40%), North Dakota (39%), Michigan (38%), and Connecticut (38%). Seven other states (Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Illinois, South Dakota, Virginia, and West Virginia) enjoyed a 30% or better archery success rate. When you compare the archery harvest to the total number of deer harvested (all weapons), we have a new record. Bowhunters are taking 19.5% of all deer in North America.

When you compare the state's land area to the total archery harvest, New Jersey bowhunters are harvesting 3.93 deer per square mile. This is followed by Pennsylvania (2.45), Michigan (2.41), Maryland (2.40), and Ohio (1.93). When you include all weapons types to the total harvest, Pennsylvania hunters are taking a remarkable 8.36 deer per square mile. 'I his is followed by Maryland (7.57), Delaware (7.51), New Jersey (6.86), and Michigan (6.63).

New Jersey also had the highest percentage of deer harvested by bowhunters compared to the total harvest with 57.4%. This was followed by Connecticut (47.7%), Ohio (46%), Illinois (40.3%), and Massachusetts (39.9%). These percentages make it clear that bowhunters are a significant management tool for some wildlife agencies.

This year, Kentucky is the latest state to allow crossbows in the archery season. Vertical bow season opens on the first Saturday in September, while horizontal season opens on the third Saturday in September. Additionally, hunters 15 years old or younger, and 65 and older, can hunt the entire archery season with a crossbow. New Hampshire also legalized crossbows for hunters 68 years of age or older (2018) during the archer) season. Additionally, New Hampshire's crossbow hunters will be allowed to hunt during the entire archery season within Wildlife Management Unit M.

While I'm sorry to end on a down note, it's important to be aware that Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) is now in 26 states and two provinces. You can bet that it will change deer management in the foreseeable future. Where CWD is present, the infection rate can exceed 10%. Localized rates of 25% have also been reported. If you don't think this is serious, you're mistaken.

About half of all states and provinces allow baiting or feeding of deer. But, once CWD hits those areas, you can bet these types of practices will be curtailed because of concerns over transfer of the disease. Ironically, Alabama has initiated a new regulation requiring resident (S15) and nonresident (S51) hunters to purchase a bait-privilege license for deer and feral hogs. Since baiting is fully engrained within the state's hunting culture, it will be interesting to see what happens in the future if CWD hits the state?

Lastly, it's vital that we follow the rules and regulations for handling the carcasses of our trophies so we don't contribute to the CWD problem. Do your part to stop the spread of this troublesome disease!

NOTE: Make sure you read and fully understand all the regulations in your state/province before going afield. If you haven't taken Bowhunter Education, I challenge you to go online and take the National Bowhunter Education Foundation (NBEF) course (nbef.org). I'd also challenge you to join the National Deer Alliance (free) and the Quality Deer Management Association. Trust me, you'll learn a lot!
