The Factors Which Make Up LTL ( LTL=LessThanTruckload) .. Freight Rates for larger items we ship are regulated and fluxuate by freight rates, by specific carriers - and 10 Common Factors help to determine LTL Freight Rates. First, consider that LTL shipments typically weigh between 151 and 20,000 lbs. - that is a tremendous "spread" and LTL carriers will usually apply a discount on shipments as the freight moves up in weight, meaning there are various “weight break discounts" and "volume break discounts" any freight carrier may give.

I saw a lot fewer deer while hunting than previous - Does this mean I should stop harvesting does?

Not necessarily. Sighting rates by hunters are usually not a reliable indicator of deer density. For example, research has documented that sighting rates drop in years with exceptionally heavy acorn crops – most likely because food is abundant and deer do not need to move far to feed. Other factors such as weather and hunting pressure play roles. In short, it is possible to have a stable or even rising deer population and see fewer deer while hunting than you did last year. Therefore, do not assume you need to shoot fewer does.
