When the Alpha Male personality goes out to find a woman, he's a man on a mission.
I've never heard anyone use "Target rich environment" in this context except as a joke about how bad the pickup lines in Top Gun were. Then again, I don't go out in this context.
I don't see how 'ock block, however relevant, is related to either set of terminology.
However, assuming your thesis is correct, and based on the personalities I have seen which are successful in their search, my hypothesis is simply that it is an extension of the base male instincts. Instincts which have served us well for hundreds of thousands of years.
We've only had science in its current form for a few hundred years, and therefore we've only had intellectuals for a few hundred years. Prior to that the closest we had were philosophers and black magic practitioners. Therefore one can conclude we haven't had the time to catch up with our own technology and culture.
Evolution is slow. Science is fast.
