I am surprised they didn't do the CC studies prior to a decision to HF
I guess if you are going to try and manipulate 400 acres, that wont effect a HF decision IDK. What are they going to do with the native deer? from what I gather from STX and a few other fellas here, the gene pool will revert back to the native genetics?
FWIW, I hunted a HF 3 sided 800 acre place near Laredo as a guest once, the deer had figured out where it was safe to "stay" on that place. Hung out in a back corner. Don't know if they would figure that out in just one season.
Be interesting to see what more knowledgeable HF folks have to say.
