    Vehicles effect the deer population more than hunters.

    Interesting read about our deer populations here in Utah. Go to the link to read the entire story about the state considering paving some roads in the Book Cliffs.
    http://wildlife.utah.gov/dwr/

    Wildlife biologists and researchers estimate that vehicles may kill as many deer in Utah every year as hunters do.

    (During the 2009 hunting season, hunters took about 23,000 deer.)

    But it's the part of the population cars take that makes the difference.

    Hunters take mostly bucks. But cars mostly kill the deer that are the key to the future growth of Utah's deer herdsódoes and fawns.

    Fortunately, new and innovative road structures are helping reduce the number of deer that are hit and killed by cars in the state.

    Around Rock Port the other day we counted 14 dead deer from Rafter B to the entrance of Rock Port. Pretty sad the number of deer hit on the highways.
