There was a study in Mississippi where they took deer from different regions of the state. Each region had different quality of deer. Similar to our Hill Country vs South Texas Deer. They put the deer in pens and altered their diet. From what I remember, their findings were that after a couple generations the deer all looked about the same. The deer from the small deer producing areas got much bigger, the medium deer got a little bigger and the biggest deer grew the least.

I actually spoke to one of the authors of the study about Texas specifically. He was of the opinion that their results would hold true here too.
