Yeah, in WV, old timers tell me it was very rare to see a deer even while driving. People would pull over to look. I'm sure in the deepest recesses they were still around, but any deer near enough to be easily seen by humans became stew.I said my state. The most heavily forested state in the nation. Also, whitetails were almost wiped out because of poaching and no game laws. Aka market hunting.
