Thoughts on Quabbin Deer


Having spent hundreds of hours at the Quabbin, I've noticed that deer seem to be much less common than they would be in a similar sized forested region anywhere else. Which has me wondering, is the thriving moose population affecting the deer population? Moose require lots of space and food and the two species, both cervids, have very similar food requirements. I'm sure Quabbin has a greater deer population than moose but it definitely does seem that deer would be even more than they already are in such a remote forested area. Is there only so much food available for deer because moose consume the best food available in the region? Comment your thoughts below!
