Compensatory Rebound Effect

Compensatory Rebound Effect (CRE) or simply Rebound has been studied and when understood leads to the disturbing conclusion that deer culling propaganda serves only one purpose to manage the deer population to keep a consistent supply of animals to kill year after year.
“ By keeping the deer population below the carrying capacity of the available habitat, more forage (nutrition) is available per deer. Thus, does are healthier, reproductive success is higher and more does are able to carry two fawns. Ironically, this can result in a greater deer harvest each year. Depending on the relationship of the population and the carrying capacity, an „optimum sustained yield‟ can be achieved where a relatively high reproductive rate allows an abundant harvest each fall.

  1. write more! your discussion were pretty good.

    1. After receiving an Open Public Records request from the city of Solon and a Freedom of Information Act request from the Dept. of Ag, Wildlife Services, who are the contracted killers in Solon now, both support the rebound effect. Many fawns ( the ones that weren't killed) and yearlings were pregnant with twins and triplets. Of course that is their goal so that they have something to kill next year. Just follow the money. If WS isn't killing they aren't being paid.
