There are less deer in the hills of Southern Vermont as the forests have grown mature and there is not enough logging.

The good land that's farms is posted now as farming is not profitable however non hunters have bought the good land and posted it.

In most states, public land is managed for both forest and wildlife production. This includes selective clear cutting and regular logging operations to take mature trees before they go downhill. These practices help not only deer, but Grouse and other animals that live on the "fringe". Comes down to what they have to work with. Most states do a pretty good job a balancing the two, but hunters never see as much game as they would like.

Private land in all areas of the country has gone the same route. Farmers are now hunters or have hunters willing to pay lease fees. Non productive farms are sold for "Rec" land usage and folks plant food plots and come to the conclusion the deer that feed on them are "theirs". Deer have become a valuable commodity.....hunting them anymore is not a sport for the poor trying to live on what they shoot.
