Has hurt the population and they dont plan on stopping the kill offs! I wouldnt be buying a lease in that county right now! Especially from PA Now 5 years ago.... You probably wouldnt even have a shot at getting that lease!

October 23, 2012 – Deer-vehicle collisions are up across the United States compared to a year ago, and Missouri is now considered a “high-risk” state when it comes to these mishaps.
The chances of you hitting a deer if driving in Missouri in the next 12 months are 1 in 116, slotting the Show-Me State at No. 15 in the country. The national average is 1 in 171.
Using its claims data and the number of licensed drivers in each state, State Farm® estimates 1.2 million collisions between deer and vehicles occurred in the U.S. between July 1, 2011, and June 30, 2012. That’s an increase of 7.7 percent over a year ago. The previous three years have seen an overall drop of 2.2 percent.
For the sixth year in a row, West Virginia tops the list. State Farm calculates the chances of a West Virginia motorist striking a deer over the next 12 months at 1 in 40, compared with 1 in 48 the year before.* South Dakota moved from third to second, at 1 in 68 on the list. Iowa drops from second to third, at 1 in 72.
The state in which deer-vehicle mishaps are least likely is still Hawaii (1 in 6,801). The odds of a driver in Hawaii colliding with a deer between now and 12 months from now are approximately equal to the odds that any one person will be struck by lightning during his or her lifetime.
WOW 1.2 million deer hit by cars in us! Missouri High risk, probably should find a lease out of the country since such High numbers of deer are dieing. I know Im being a smart ass!
Deer die, populations rebound, the deer heard is still plentiful!!
