deer numbers in n.s

All of a sudden this year the deer are all over this is pure moose country where I live too so its not very normal to see them all over. Ive seen about 10, 2 bucks and about 8 does one dead (hit by a car). Also seen alot of moose this year too about 10 of those too but the ones I keep seeing are the same cow and calfs hanging out at the same spot everytime I think I found thier watering hole hopefully they keep using it and noone else knows they are there.

In Pictou County where Caper40 hunted last year, there is a better than average deer herd in my opinion We had very little snow(had the driveway plowed once) and that is basically unheard of in Northern Nove Scotia
