This recent report given at the Wyoming Game and Gish Commission meeting on Jan. 18, 2018 is very informative and worth your time. Proceed to about the 1 hour and 55 minute mark, it lasts about 60 minutes.  This research can relate to blacktail deer as well.

Too bad there isn't a short extract containing the key, valuable points.  At my age I am constitutionally incapable of listening to committees, long verbal reports and meetings.  Drives me absolutely crazy.

New ideas don't take hold because people become convinced of them, they take hold because the people believing the old stuff die.

only thing i saw relating to blacktail is the need for winter feed and although he didnt mention it , need to eliminate predators . his grafs showed predator kills . 

the wintering areas are way different , at least in calif. we dont have sub zero temps and 5-10 feet of snow on ground in wintering areas . 

fawn survival is key in both places . predators kill lots in the graf he used and they can kill them there , wolves and cats . we cant here so i could just imagine our deer/fawn  survival rate if we could kill em again . 

maybe the article relates to blacktail in the area you came from but very little of it is true in nor cal
