"Based on experience gained in Britain and on the Continent, this book is a practical guide to more economical management of deer, leading to better herds. The author... here states his beliefs that good management comes from selective control, sex ratio at the right level and control of density in relation to feeding capacity of the terrain. He feels strongly that deer on the hill are an asset to any estate and should be properly exploited. At the same time he is bitterly opposed to deer farming, insisting that the wild nature of the species must be preserved. ...Several of A.J. de Nahlik's lectures to deer-holding landowners are included and he gives guidelines on co-operation between estates. For anyone interested in raising deer for profit this book is an invaluable aid". Chapters include: Deer in Britain - history, habitats, habits; Body and tooth development as aids to recognition; Characteristics of antler development; Deer counting; Deer damage; Density; Feeding and shelter; Planned management; Co-operation; General consideration; Evaluation of stalking; Deer as economic product. The nine appendices include: Chemical deterrents; Percentage analysis of fodder and plants with which deer may come into contact in their habitat; The Hoffman Pyramid; Basic planning of deer management for economic return; General considerations of deer economics; Balance of sex ratio in deer economics; Sex ratio and culling of calves; Other income from deer; Comparison of deer and sheep.
