Happy Thanksgiving

We found out about another incredible long distance dispersal of >30 miles this week. The doe was part of our fawn survival studies that were conducted in 2015-2017. It will be awhile before I can narrow down which individual it is. This a great reminder of why it's important to keep your eye out if you hunt off post. Please submit any sightings of tagged or collared deer at fortdrumdeer.org/tagreport . Please also submit tissue samples from deer harvested off post. More info can be found on the site. ...

We had a deer from one of your studies in Mooers Forks a few years ago. We were in touch with you for a few days but nothing since.

Now that the hunting season is in full swing, we are back to working on the 2020 population survey. The survey included 222 trail cameras and was conducted in March through May earlier this year. I decided to make an IG account where I can publicly share some of the highlights from each camera. Check it out at:

There will only be a small fraction of the >120,000 photos from the survey. The primary project photo page for everything other than trail cam photos is still at:

I received a question today about our deer birth distribution results and wanted to share the information to everyone. The birth peak has stayed consistently May 31/June 1 every year since we began in 2015. Birth peak can be used to predict the arrival of the rut. White-tailed deer gestation is 200-205 days. ...
