(NOTE: Please see post # 38 on page 3 for the update!!!)

Digging into my stash'o stuff came across some interesting documents which included a map of the Twisp districts 1938 winter deer survey.  I've blurred out the deer count numbers in the red circles and replaced them with A,B,C,D for this first go-round.  (Will do more of the drainage's in the valley if there's interest.)

So, to be clear, your vote will be for the totals of the counts of A,B,C,D on this map. 
I'll have the poll up for 4 days, after that I'll post an original picture showing the counts in the red circles.





Here's the totals.  6,810

38 was a little before my time so not sure of any natural phenomenon  but historically those areas were a huge winter range.

This is the dumbest thing I’ve ever read about deer hunting. :yike:

 Fitkin said. “Our harvest pressure stays pretty consistent, but if there are less bucks on the landscape overall, hunters probably are going to take a higher percentage.”
