State biologists said there are more than 500000 deer in California, substantially more than in 1910 (when the deer were hunted nearly to extinction), but much less  than in the 1960s (current deer population is about 50 percent below the level of the 1980s)

The state is considering ending the hunting ban in protected areas created when deer populations were at critically low levels.
