not the only new thing the Scheiners are They have offered hunts since the but recent efforts have been directed at upgrading the quantity and quality of one of the ranchs less exotic and mosthunted The sports an amazing number of whitetail including hundreds of bucks with 10 and 12point antlers that would make any hunters mouth The whitetails are alive and well among exotics such as Indian blackbuck fallow corsican sheep and Things havent always been so rosy for the Years in the we had about one deer for every three or four but today its more like one for every 12 said Harvey who has been ranchs wildlife manager since the hunts were I think we made some mistakes back but weve learned from and the herd is really building back up to what the ranch can What the learned was that harvesting doe whitetails is not the magic potion for curing over The ranch tried it and the result was a drastic decline in the number of bucks and the quality of In the the ranch covered about acres and we killed about one buck for every 63 said That was a lot of bucks but harvesting them isnt what brought the herd What happened was that we also harvested hundreds of does and lost our The lost production reduced the number of bucks taken from one for every 63 acres to one buck per That was about 75 the lowest harvest we had ever had on remembers What happened was that when we had such a large number of we did just what a lot of wildlife biologists think you should do harvest the But we harvested them too Goff said he believes other landowners probably have done the same He isnt against harvesting He just has learned that the key is to selectively harvest Many of the does that the hunters harvested still had said By removing the the fawn didnt have a chance to grow up into a healthy As a the orphaned after started fawning late in the Deer born in the spring generally have a better chance of survival because of milder weather con ditions and a more abundant food Deer born in the fall usually face rough With winter food more scarce and conditions often those that survive winter are not in poorer condition than those born a few months And the doe that is in the best body especially during the early years of are ones that are going to produce the best We just left them alone until they got over the fall fawing Goff most of our does are fawning in the spring and our buck size has The still needs to harvest does to keep its herd in but Fogg said the harvest will be aimed at the older those about 6 years A doe thats 6VS wont raise as good a fawn as one thats 3 or Goff If she breeds at shes 7 by the time she kicks the fawn And shes already having health Since a deer that age isnt going to raise a very healthy thats the time she should be The also is doing some extensive studies on antler placing colored tags on young We put tags on them when they are about 6 months old so we can follow their antler Goff adding that he disagrees with the notion that all spike bucks are inferior and should be We have found that there definitely are inferior deer among our but we havent determined whether there are more spikes that are inferior than forked he Some fourand six pointers are inferior Only deer that have at least eight points are allowed to be killed by hunters on the That has helped keep the flow of quality bucks from year to Fishing Report AUSTIN
