That is more than one-million acres for one-hundred-ninety-five-thousand people.
It's no wonder you can't grasp it.
You appear to live in the Siskiyou area of the Rogue River – Siskiyou National Forest located between Oregon and California. The total population of the counties that make up the entire national forest is about 700,000.
The total estimated population of deer in the two states combined is no more than 1,000,000.
The total population of California and Oregon is approximately 42,000,000. Even if only 10% (4.2M) people survive, and every deer in the two states can be found and killed, that's 1 deer for every 4.2 people. Then all the deer will be dead.
