By 1939, Leopold estimated that the herd was down to about 10,000, with a lowered carrying … The Kaibab Deer. It was hoped that natural predation would keep the deer population from becoming too large and also increase the deer quality (or health), as predators often eliminate the weaker members of the herd.

A Kaibab Deer Investigation Committee recommended that all livestock not owned by local residents be immediately removed from the range and that the number of deer in the herd be reduced by 50 percent as quickly as possible. Kaibab example was inconclusive. 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. Kaibab Plateau has a carrying capacity of 30,000 deer at any one point in time (Allen, 2013). The195-pg.

The Kaibab deer herd has been steadily improving every year in age class and the quality of bucks that can be found. Before 1905, the deer on the Kaibab Plateau were estimated to number about 4000. In an effort to protect the “finest deer herd in America,” President Theodore Roosevelt banned all hunting of the deer by creating the Grand Canyon National Game Preserve in November 1906. The carrying capacity of an ecological system refers to the total number of a species in a particular area, which is supported conveniently without degradation. The first step to protect the deer was to ban all hunting. Background: Before 1905, deer in the Kaibab Plateau were estimated to number about 4,000. management.
