Hi guys how do you work out the correct numbers of deer that should populate a certain area for each species? It's something that I find hard to understand how deer management works and I know it must differ based on the type of land you have.
Is there a general number of say x amount of muntjac, roe, fallow, etc, per acre?
One reason I ask is that I have been granted to shoot over 2000 acres of newly acquired farmland that has not been shot for over a year and the numbers of rabbit, pigeon, etc are very high and I'm guessing muntys and CWD will be present in numbers too.
It may be an ideal area of land for me to learn to stalk over for a while before actually taking a shot at any deer,
