marquette county hunting

I have property in Marquette county in Harrisville. I have been hunting this property for 7 years now. I have yet to shoot a deer here because I only shoot what I will mount. I would always see deer (bucks, does, and fawns) but this year I'm not seeing much at all. wondering if anyone else is noticing this or its just our property.

Is marquette county near Briggsville? I heard there has been a substantial problem with deer dying due to blue tongue. Heard (cant verify as I dont know land owner) that one farm found 50 dead deer on the property as a result of this.

TRetzlaff not sure where south of montello you hunt but if its near where i use to hunt, i can tell you that 10 deer were killed off 63 acres and 4 killed and 2 wounded already this year, and were not to gun season yet. There are people out there now that would never pickup a bow but now that we have crossbows they are everywhere.

I hunt in the northwest corner of the county about 6-7 miles north of Westfield. Our deer herd is in pretty solid shape still and we have several large bucks, although we have been losing several deer every year because of the wolves that are increasing in population. You guys probably have a smaller herd because that side of the highway was formerly 67A and was in T-Zone/Herd control for almost 20 years. There's a lot more public and overall pressure on that side of the highway.

We have property between Princeton and Montello and have hunted it for over 20 years. The deer population is not what is was when we first started hunting there. Green Lake and Marquette Counties get hunted hard every year. Lots of city folks that blast away at anything brown.
