    I'm doing a reasearch report on hunting and how hunters keep populations of game in check and I need to know about any game other than deer that harm their habitat by having a huge population.

    Yotes are a big one, I can't think of anything else at least in the South that preys on deer.

      Up in maine we need a bear and a moose season to control their populations. Without moose season their is a boost in brain worm in the moose and with the bears if there is no season over bait ( which is essential if you want to get a reasonable number of bear) the bears get aggressive towards humans because they aren't getting shot at.

            Feral hogs would certainly be one.
            You can find info on hogs and other wild life at this
            link.

                Prairie dogs. They are quite prevalent out West and if they are abundant in an area where there are cattle, they can step in the holes and break legs. I have heard ranchers complain of the this when I guided in CO.

                  elk and bison in yellowstone had pretty well eaten themselves out of house and home prior to the introduction of wolves. hunters obviously weren't allowed in the park and weren't succesful in reducing the migrating herds once they left the park and went into Montana. with the elk herds now reduced, the aspen and willows have returned to the park.

                    Is there any animal, game of non-game, in overabundance, that doesn't create a problem with its environment?

                      Hogs are terrible on the land also predators like coyotes and hawks.

                          Hogs are always a threat because they can take over and populate new areas very quickly, but I would say one of the most overlooked animals would have to be geese, especially the snow goose. Geese will eat a lot of food for their size, I believe this to be the reason why I have yet to have a farmer turn me down when I ask to goose hunt his fields, they can quickly strip the land of ground cover in the spring when they eat the shoots of new plants, grasses, and crops.

                            The most devastating ecological damage ever done was in 1906, President Theodore Roosevelt established the Grand Canyon National Game Preserve on the Kaibab Plateau.

                              Wolves in the U.P. of MI, turkeys are starting to do alot of crop damage where I live too. Especially when they are competing with the deer for food.
