Anecdotal evidence suggests that the deer culling has been hugely successful thus far, and a lot of the hunting season remains. 18 deer have been culled so far, one less than the 19 Dover got in its whole first year of deer culling a year ago. More bucks than does have been taken. The deer are reported to be covered with hundreds of ticks.
Recent reports have many ticks still active, despite the colder weather.
