New Hampshire Deer Population, Management News and Information Archive

There are now more white-tailed deer in New Hampshire than in early colonial times. Our forefathers simply killed and ate our state's deer until they were nearly gone by 1800. Thanks to modern deer management, especially since 1983 when New Hampshire Fish and Game wildlife biologist were given the authority to regulate the deer kill, the deer population has grown from about 40,000 deer to at least 120,000 deer today.
