The deer herd in Price County may see a significant jump in numbers this coming year, with the county’s deer advisory council’s goal to increase the deer population over the next three years coming on the back of an inordinately mild winter.

The county’s deer population — estimated at 25,900 after last year’s hunt and predicted to grow to 31,000 before this year’s hunt — may increase another 15.3% in a single year, based on the preliminary antlerless quota of 4,000 proposed by the Price County Deer Advisory Council on March 22.
