Greetings from Capt. Dave & BAYMEN!
When I was in college, one of my papers on autecology was on the White-Tailed Deer. My research suggested the white-tail’s range extended into Alaska (although it was not officially acknowledged by Alaska Fish & Game or wildlife managers of the day). A fellow student in the class challenged me vehemently after my speech, publicly and privately, and forever took issue with my claim. I am very happy to read that Alaska Fish & Game and those PhD’s in Wildlife Management are now forced to acknowledge (against their own wills and wishes) the facts that the white-tail deer’s range does indeed extend into Alaska.
Touche, my colleague.
