IIRC the beginning of the game laws came about mostly from hunters, trappers, and fisherman who were witnessing the destruction of the the fisheries, hunting, and trapping grounds. This destruction was motivated by the selling of fish/game to the restaurants in the cities facilitated by unregulated markets, and non-existent game laws.

Isn't that how it's supposed to work?

Seriously though, different states / agencies have different priorities. Deer herd management is one of the objectives, so other places can decide on how they want to get there...
