My son and I were invited to hunt some private land in Carter County this past year. The Box Elder Creek ran through this property. We saw more whitetail deer in one day there than we will see in a season in NE Mississippi. We both killed good bucks while there. The people in Ekalaka were very hospitable. It was a 1,438 mile drive and we'll worth it. We had never seen that part of the country. The land owner told us deer #'s were down well over 50%. I can't imagine there being twice as many deer as we saw. Thanks to the people and state of Montana and our host for a great experience. Some of you may be able to answer this question for me. If there are so many deer that Blue Tongue and/or EHD is affecting the herd adversely, why are the bag limits so restrictive? Not being negative, just wondering.
