South Dakota Deer Population

3 posts in this topic

I'm wondering if anyone hunted deer in SD this year (Mostly East River). I have for many years in Hand County (Miller area) and the numbers have dropped so much it is really disturbing. The GFP is aware of the problem and are looking into it. Areas that have traditionally wintered 100-250 deer now hold 10-12! Some people think it is Blue Tongue and of course the ever popular Coyote. Just looking for reports on deer.

I would love to know if that is a normal number of deer for this time of year or not....

      So a few questions about Winni as I have never been there before. Do you find that the fishing tapers off as winter progresses, for example if heading up there for Perch and Walleye would you chose January, February or March, or doesn't it seem to matter much?  Also what is the night vs daytime bite like? Trying to plan a few days up there with the wife and trying to decide when to go and if a sleeper is worthwhile or just do a daytime shack.   Any thoughts are appreciated.     Thank you

      The Helix 5 gives you the option to view different screens. The view button option shows separate flasher screen, sonar , gps , others. Screen views will run side by side in different combinations, but flasher screen only works by itself. Great little unit. I use mine for gps . Ram mount on handlebar
