Barbara1,all I know right know is; we have lived in the same place since 1969 and there are more deer than in 1969.The under growth in the woods is gone.(did I mention, we can not hunt near by)There are more deer in NJ than in colonial times with less open land. I agree with Ed saying animals come to humans for food.
To get rid of the problem, arm deer.
