I'm looking for a wildlife biologist in the Mason/Kimble county line area. We have about 1100 acres and have some questions about exotics and whitetail, high fencing and low fencing and what would be best for the area. If you know of anyone that is good please post up and I will get into touch with them. Thanks for the help.

If you want to raise good quality WT then stay away from exotics. You can do both together okay but you will not have the quality of WT that you will have managing WT only.

Go to the TP&W website. You can do a search for their biologist in whatever county you want.

I used to know a guy that had exotics. Make sure you move your big feeders around when you can. The animals will use the restroom around them and this causes diseases. He suffered from this by not constantly moving his feeders. Got to keep it clean.

Isn't that the truth? When in doubt, listen to our resident THF biologist, Obie juan Kenobi, AKA stxranchman.

Conventional wisdom based on incomplete/incorrect data sets/interpretations got us "once a spike always a spike" too. You can raise huge white tails and exotics side by side all day long. It's a function of how well you take care of them.

Remember, the biggest white tails in the world grow in postage stamp pastures.

The only thing you really need to watch is the animals that might gore your WT at feeders.

Sure you can if you have enough feeders and deep enough pockets to be able to feed exotics free choice year round. Been there and done that.

Make sure you check references. Most biologists I run accross now days are good at quoting out of books, but when it comes to practical ranch solutions they miss the ball. Common sence goes a long way. Good luck to you.

Which exotics are guilty of goring other animals at a feeder?
