Hunting can help regulate this population if done correctly. (Hartiganand Osbourne). Hunting helps the deer population by decreasing the likelihood of overpopulation.

According to statistics from State Farm Insurance, “an estimated 1.5 million vehicles collide with deer every year in the United States, causing 1.1 billion in property damage,” as stated by Dave Roos, author of “Does Deer Hunting Reduce Car Accidents” as published on How Stuff Works website. This statistic is too high, meaning that the people of the United States need to do something about the deer population in our country. Many people do not like the deer because things like this happen. Although the deer in this world have rights, they are overpopulated and need to be hunted more and more because the deer cause car accidents, put food on the table, and hunting is a real sport that can be fun. Hunting seasons must be extended for longer periods of time.

Hunters have now raised that number to thirty-two million” , hunters protect deer so they can continue to hunt them and keep the population strong and healthy.

In the past decade, the population of white-tail deer has grown due to restriction of deer hunting. The recovery of deer populations from only about500,000 nationwide in the early 1900s to more than 15 million today is considered a wildlife management success story (Curtis & Sullivan, 2001).
