The deer population has exploded in central FL over the past 25 - 30 years, I am amazed at the deer I see in places where none existed when I was growing up there. Not the biggest deer in the country, but my brother in law has taken some decent bucks in Sumter County.

One thing I do remember was it seems all the deer taste good down there. They have an unending and varied supply of food compaired to many states. It does seem many more deer in about anywhere you go to hun in any state compared to 20 to 30 years ago..

I am not familiar with that part of the state, but up in the panhandle, we are over-run with the deer. My wife has run over three in the last 5 years, and that is not uncommon for us country folk. It is a rare morning that I don't see deer on my drive to work. There is a lot of public hunting land here as well.

I hunt in the Green Swamp. In the early part of the season I believe there are more hunters than deer.
