"One of the most contentious issues at present in the Scottish Highlands is the rise in the red deer population and the way this should be controlled". The author examines the issues and makes recommendations. Good examination of the role of sport in the essentially artificial ecology of the deer forest. "In Stag at Bay Michael Wigan looks in detail at the latest scientific findings on red deer, where populations rose fastest, why, and what has been done about it. He analyses the range of opinion on deer, the different land use philosophies and deer forest owners and their critics. Describing the individuals who are shaping policy he suggests the commonsense direction if a sustainable mixed land use is the aim."
