First Crop of Fawns on
fFlat Top Mountain
The Flat Top Mountain
Deer Restoration Area,
which was established in
the northwest corner of
Yancey County last winter,
has now produced its first
crop of fawns, according to
Frank B. Barick, North
Carolina Wildlife Resour
ces Commission biologist in
charge of big game restor
ation. Fawn sign has been
seen near each of the re
lease points and sign of
adult deer has been observ
ed ou all parts of the refuge
The new refuge which
was stocked last winter oc
cupies about 7,500 acres of
U. S. Forest Service land
between ihe Nolichucky
River and U. S. highway
19E-23. A total of 50 deer
were released on the area,
half of them from Wiscon
sin and half from the Mt.
Uitchell refuge in the east
side of the County.
.Although set up jointly by
the North Carolina Wild
life Resources Commission
and the U. S. Forest Serv
ice, this area will not be ma
naged exactly the same as
the Cooperative Wildlife
Management Areas such as
the Mt. Mitchell refuge.
The main point of differen
ce lies in the fact that the will be thrown
open to public hunting with
out a drawing or permit
system when it is consider
ed sufficiently stocked with
deer. This period of de
velopment will be at least
five years, but it may be lo
nger if dogs or. poaching
keeps the herd from grow
ing properly.
According to figures co
mpiled by Barick, the orig
inal herd of 50 can multiply
at a maximum rate of one
and one-half fawns per doe
each year. At this rate the
re would be between 750
and 1000 head of deer in
western Yancey County by
1955, and this would supply
an annual buck harvest of
between 50 and 100 deer
from then on. This, how
ever, is under ideal condi
tions of protection from
dogs and poaching.

Tis with our judgements
as our watches, None go
just alike, yet believes his
Own. Pope |
are especially serious dur
ing the early years of a pro
gram such as this, because
each deer killed represents
a great loss in breeding po
tential. According to the
same figures quoted above,
for each doe killed during
the first year, we lose 20
deer that would have issued
from that deer and its off
spring in the five year pro
tection period.
Although considerable
fawn sign has been seen,
the area has already suf
fered some damage due to
free running dogs. At least
two cases of such killings
have been reported which
already represent a loss of
40 deer five years from
now. Barick pointed out
that it is a violation of the
game law to allow dogs to
run deer at any time, whe
ther on private or govern
ment land, and that the
owners of dogs running
deer are liable to prosecu
tion. It is believed, how- ,
ever, that most of the dog
running has been done by
stray dogs, since most of
the people living near the
refuge are cooperating by
keeping their dogs tied.
The Flat Top Mountain
Dope Restoration Area is
the first of fts Kind to he
established. It is planned to
create other similar areas
on Forest Service land in
the western part of the
State. Part of the stock for
these new areas is to be se
cured from established re
fuges and part from Wis
consin-deer being bought
again this year by the
life Resources Commission.
Due to the fact that bucks
only have been hunted on
the various western wild
life management areas,
there exists a surplus of
doe deer on most of them.
Using this surplus for
breeding stock on new ar
eas is considered a much
wiser use than opening the
season on them. For vari
ous reasons, all transplant
ing from western areas is
to be used to restock new
areas in the mountain
