Big Buck Project Breeder Bucks Released Into Marengo County
Plans to release farmed deer into the wild deer herd in Marengo County—arguably the heart of Alabama’s deer herd—have reverberated across the deer world, drawing both praise and opposition—most of the opposition coming from professional biologists, and most of the praise coming locally.
Titled Big Buck Project, and having a website of the same name, the plan is “simply to improve the quality of the deer herd here in Marengo County,” said project spokesperson Hale Smith.
“We are excited about this program,” he continued. “This is a natural outgrowth of what has been happening here in Marengo County for the past couple of decades. If you go to our website, you can watch Mr. Roy Jordan describe his positive results over the past 17 years as he has been releasing deer that he purchased onto his property, free range. What we are doing is nothing new, at least in that regard. read more>>>>>
