Approximate Completion Date




Life history characteristics of white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) have been documented in the Northern Great Plains, but limited information is available in regions dominated by grasslands. The objectives of this study were to document movements, cause-specific mortality, survival rates, and habitat selection of white-tailed deer.
