**Reiny**, Sunday, July 5, 2009 at 9:42pm177/708 or 25% of the deer caught in the second round were tagged.

Which implies that the conservationist must have tagged 25% of the deer population in the preserve.

So the original 874 deers must represent 25% of the deer population.

.25x = 874

x = 874/.25 = 3496

So there must have been approximately 3500 deer.
