According to Leopold, by 1924 the deer herd had increased to 100,000, followed by a famine that reduced the herd 60 percent over two winters. The first step to protect the deer was to ban all hunting. management. For example, if the population gets to large, food supply may be used up resulting in many animals dying of starvation. The Supreme Court agreed that the Kaibab deer herd had exceeded the range's carrying capacity and that over- grazing by mule deer had denuded pub- lic lands.

Thus, the most suited population that would not degrade the environment, but still inhabit the place comfortably would be close to, but not more than the carrying capacity (Allen, 2013). The Kaibab Plateau is one of the most beautiful places in Arizona and is home to one of the greatest mule deer herds on earth. In the decades that followed, biologists used the popular story of the Kaibab deer to demonstrate the adverse effect of predator control on prey populations. Abstract: The North Kaibab mule deer herd declined from approximately 15,000 to 5,000 deer between 1966 and 1976. Kaibab example was inconclusive.

According to Leopold, by 1924 the deer herd had increased to 100,000, followed by a famine that reduced the herd 60 percent over two winters. The first step to protect the deer was to ban all hunting. management. For example, if the population gets to large, food supply may be used up resulting in many animals dying of starvation. The Supreme Court agreed that the Kaibab deer herd had exceeded the range's carrying capacity and that over- grazing by mule deer had denuded pub- lic lands.

Thus, the most suited population that would not degrade the environment, but still inhabit the place comfortably would be close to, but not more than the carrying capacity (Allen, 2013). The Kaibab Plateau is one of the most beautiful places in Arizona and is home to one of the greatest mule deer herds on earth. In the decades that followed, biologists used the popular story of the Kaibab deer to demonstrate the adverse effect of predator control on prey populations.
