actually there were a lot less than today. By the mid 1800's and the introduction of settlers and firearms. Between the natives, settlers and no hunting laws, deer were pretty much wiped out.

I see no need to limit myself to one way of hunting, it just depends on the situation as to whether I am in a stand or not. I like it all.

The indians did not have the restrictions of game laws is why they killed so many animals. They would use dogs, traps, snares or anything you could thiink of to provide the early meat markets, They would even set fires to drive animals. They didn't play by the same rules we do.

My understanding is that Native Americans killed so many animals to survive. Also, to use every bit of the animal to benefit their survival. Now we just go to Walmart, Tops, Wegmans, etc.
