For most of the last century, range management meant managing land for livestock. The best measure of success was how well a landowner grew the grass that cattle ate. In this century, landowners look to hunting and wildlife viewing for income; rangeland is now also wildlife habitat, and landowners are managing their land not just for cattle but also for wildlife, most notably deer and quail. Unlike other books on white-tailed deer in places where rainfall is relatively high and the environment stable, this book takes an ecological approach to deer management in the semiarid lands of Oklahoma, Texas, and northern Mexico. These are the least productive of white-tail habitats, where periodic drought punctuates long-term weather patterns. The book's focus on this landscape across political borders is one of its original and lasting contributions. Another is its contention that good management is based on ecological principles that guide the manager's thinking about: Habitat Requirements of White-Tailed Deer; White-Tailed Deer Nutrition; Carrying Capacity; Habitat Manipulation; Predators; and Hunting.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Finally, we have a carefully written book on the fundamentals of white-tailed deer management...a splendid reference for the classroom and those who make their living from wildlife and the land. It will hold a prominent place in the libraries of wildlife and range scientist, students, and landowners for many years."
." . . fills a niche that is not currently approached in the literature, both for South Texas/northern Mexico and for the wildlife field in general. There is no other text that addresses the management of the white-tailed deer in a semi-arid environment."--D. Lynn Drawe, Rob & Bessie Welder Wildlife Foundation--D.
