"The primary obstacle is to get a community to agree on whether or not they actually have a deer problem, and can they agree on a course of action," said Chris Rosenberry, the Pennsylvania Game Commission's chief deer biologist.

Chris Rosenberry, supervisor of the deer and elk section for the PGC, indicated that Monday's harvest was typical for the first day of the season. Last year, a total of eight elk were harvested on the opening day of the hunt. Each hunter awarded a license was also given a designated zone in which they are permitted to hunt. There are 10 such zones throughout the elk range, as well as an open zone; however, two of the zones are closed to elk hunting this year. On Monday afternoon, Rosenberry remarked that a number of elk harvested on the first day came from the same hunt zone. "A lot have come out of Hunt Zone 2," Rosenberry said. According to information listed on the PGC website, a total of four antlered and 12 anterless licenses were issued for Hunt Zone 2, which consists of public land administered by the PGC and Bureau of Forestry. Rosenberry also indicated that the hunt is used, in part, to help control the elk population in certain units of the range. "Other units are closed [to hunting] to allow the population of elk that are in there to grow and provide recreational opportunity," Rosenberry said.

"I would say there's certainly some very impressive animals coming out of those areas," said Dr. Christopher Rosenberry, the Pennsylvania Game Commission's Deer Management Section supervisor.
"It depends on what kind of effort hunters are willing to make," Rosenberry said.
"In Unit 2B around Pittsburgh and Unit 5B, which is the immediate vicinity around the city of Philadelphia, the objective is to reduce the deer population, but allocations did not increase in those units because we're not selling the tags that are out there," Rosenberry explained.
Forest health is rated as poor in WMU 5C; however, according to Dr. Rosenberry, deer have good nutrition.
A great tip for trophy buck hunters is to look at the areas where 4-point antler restrictions are in effect, but not for the reason that some might expect.
"What we were trying to achieve by putting the 4-point regulation out is protecting half of the yearling bucks from harvest in those areas because, before antler restrictions, those areas were showing better antler development among yearling bucks compared to the 3-point areas," Rosenberry said.
When asked whether one could equate habitat type to hunter success or to big bucks, Rosenberry said, "It could be related. I don't know if it's real clear."
No matter how often it is explained, hunters, many of them opponents of Pennsylvania Game Commission deer management methods, do not understand the reasoning behind antler restrictions. Producing trophy bucks is not a management goal and has nothing to do with the reasoning behind antler restrictions.
Rosenberry will offer tips for locating the better bucks.
"In general, I would say that any place where there is decent nutrition should be a good area," he said.
It seems odd that our oldest buck would come from an area that is 50 percent public land, Rosenberry noted.

In short, "we want to make sure deer are the problem," said Game Commission deer biologist Chris Rosenberry.
As to why now, this kind of study just couldn't be done before, Rosenberry said.
The commission actively decreased deer populations between 2002 and 2004, he said. Prior to that, the commission's deer program was based on deer density objectives, which is not the case today. The data available for evaluation today didn't exist then either, he noted.
The commission has always tried to use science to better refine its deer program and deer management recommendations, though, he added.
"In short, "we want to make sure deer are the problem," said Game Commission deer biologist Chris Rosenberry."
Oh brother... Pa biologists are far worse than politicians when it comes to talking out the side of their mouths.
"As to why now, this kind of study just couldn't be done before, Rosenberry said."
Rosenberry and the PGC have always known the deer weren't he only problem with forest regeneration.

"Since deer herd reductions earlier this decade, the deer management program has worked to stabilize the deer populations in most WMUs during the past three seasons," said Dr. Christopher Rosenberry, Game Commission Deer Management Section supervisor.
