Sure, but the Whitetail is in a different situation than the Passenger Pigeon or Dodo bird. Department of Fish & Wildlife monitors the population pretty well, and will adjust the hunting season or hunting licenses accordingly. Of more concern is the whitetails historic natural predators. Their populations have been driven so low by hunting and humans encroaching on their territory that in some regions the Whitetail population needs to be thinned out, as they almost become pests, ravaging vegetable and fruit gardens, running in front of cars and causing thousands of dollars in damage.

Ever heard of the once very common [now extinct] Passenger Pigeon and how apt.....Dodo.
Local from USA! about 8years ago said:
A key distinction there, is that the whitetail deer is in no danger of becoming extinct.

Thank god that argument fell on deaf ears in the case of the Blue Whale...and others.
