Deer Census

It’s hard to figure out how many deer are in an area. This story says that the New York City DEP thinks there are 20 to 25 per square mile near some of its reservoirs, while Lyme disease researchers counted 50 to 55 per square mile in northern Westchester (which means there might be 1,100 deer in my town). The 50 to 55 estimate is in line with what Greenwich Audubon estimated a few yers ago, before it began a hunting program on its land.
