why do you think the deer population was only 4,00 in 1905 when the carrying capacity of the rangeland could support 30,000 deer or more. I don't understand why a population could be so far below the carrying capacity.

  • science -

    The deer hadn't found this area?

    Hunters had decimated the deer?

    The carrying capacity just means the number that the area could support.

  • science -

    Was there competition for the food supply? Cattle?
