According to Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, hunters killed 575,000 white-tailed deer during the 2011-12 season. That is a dip of about 75,000 from the previous year, but on par with a 12-year average.  All the while, the overall deer population has been stable or showing a slight uptick since 2005. While numbers for 2012 are still being crunched, TPWD showed an estimated deer population of about 3.3 million last year. That is the same as 2005, but in between the estimate has climbed to as high as almost 3.8 million.
