"More Mule Deer!"

How about this topic. We all want to hunt, and we all want to hunt good quality. At this point, it can't happen because the resource (bucks) are limited. So for years, states have made changes to reduce harvest by limiting season lengths and tag numbers.

Technology, time and dedication to hunting trophy bucks is what put us in the situation we're in where tags are so hard to come by.
Is there a way to utilize technology and time to increase deer numbers that would therefore increase tag numbers?

Over the last 50-60 years since our mule deer numbers across the west peaked, what has changed to drive numbers down? Deer summer range has decrease a little, but in my opinion the biggest change is the amount of winter range available for the game. It's nowhere near what it was in the 1960's. So wouldn't many of you agree that quantity of winter range and quality of winter range are some of the biggest limiting factors for mule deer?

If that's the case, what could be done to replace that winter range in order to increase deer numbers?

How about feeding deer? I know it's a hot debate on whether it works or not, but if it could work and could work financially, wouldn't it be awesome to do it and double our deer herds?

I made a smartbutt comment in another thread about drones dropping feed pellets for deer in remote areas. But how far fetched is such an idea? Could the technology be used to increase buck numbers versus only reducing it?
What possibly could be done to increase deer herds and maintain it?

Let's hear some comments.


We need more bucks like this one
