Re: MSY (Max Sustained Yield)
Fact is, the Biological Carrying Capacity of forest habitat was scientifically determined by taking deer to the point of death. Then density <span style="font-style: italic">goals</span> were set very conservatively BELOW that point, in fact less than HALF of BCC. In other words, the point of MSY.
Fact is, it is stated in PGC deer plan that density goal is one which can support deer <span style="font-style: italic">"<span style="text-decoration: underline">without</span> over-browsing forest habitats"</span>.
