I am not surprised a bit. In a system where the wildlife belongs to the landowner, of course the landowner wants more of them because that means more income. Never mind any kind of ecological damage that may be resulting. As far as the "gamekeepers" are concerned, those are their livelihood because they are paid to manage them for the owner of the property. Those people are not worried at all about the health of the herd or the ecosystem, they are worried about the number of dollars that can be generated by selling hunts to the wealthy. The more deer they have, the more hunts they can sell, and the easier the hunts are.
