Thanks for posting Gal lot of good info. I am suspect of the fawn recruitment rate though. With HR we have to have skewed the age structure to younger doe (which all other things being equal produce less doe then older doe}. Add to that the increase in predator population and this number doesn't change one bit? Sounds bogus to me.
the % of fawns in the harvest hasn't changed much. if predators or a younger female age structure were reducing recruitment, less fawns would be available for harvest, and the % of fawns in the al harvest would drop.
