Hunters kill bucks in preference to does, which does nothing at all to control the deer population because even one buck can and will impregnate every doe in a herd, if he's the only one left. If they were serious about controlling deer, they would kill only does. (They would also stop claiming that bucks with big racks are dying of old age, as that process involves not growing large antler racks anymore, because the buck's teeth are worn out.) It's edge habitat like farmland that encourages deer to breed, so the idea that humans are the cause is pretty close to spot on. There are more deer now than there were before Europeans settled here, because we've essentially changed the habitat to encourage deer to breed.
I wrote something about this decades ago. Let's see if I can find it online...nope, it's gone.
I guess we can "call it" for this topic...
