In a word: Yes.

It is overpopulated. If you think every individual can survive self sufficiently off 5 or even 8.7 acres, you are gravely mistaken. Every plot of those 5 or 8.7 acres is not necessarily farmable, huntable, mineral laden, or most often does not have its own water source. Average that all out according to availability per acre and you will find it is not possible.
