Statewide Mule Deer Study

Duration

March 2017 - February 2021

Narrative

This study will provide needed information concerning migration, habitat selection, nutrition, and population dynamics in areas where these elements of mule deer ecology are poorly understood. Results from this study will help managers in these ecotypes better prescribe hunting seasons, understand public access opportunities or limitations related to deer population segments and seasonal distributions, and access the effects of whether, fire, and habitat management on deer dynamics with implications for managing sustained abundance and hunter opportunity.
