Here’s an in-depth look at what years of scientific research have revealed about buck rubs: the rut’s most visible signpost.
Research reveals how forest cover influences buck dispersal behavior.
A closer look at how white-tailed doe social hierarchy traits and dispersal behavior might be a main culprit in the spread of chronic wasting disease.
A comprehensive look at sexual dimorphism in white-tailed deer and how the differences define bucks and does across North America.
Whitetails use chemical signals for communication more than visual signs and vocalizations. Glandular secretions and body odors serve better in forested cover because they can be memorized and left on objects in the woods. They can identify the maker, permit scent-matching marks and produce long-lasting messages that continue to work in the maker’s absence. […]
Bergmann’s rule states that animal populations and species of larger size are found in colder environments, and the reverse is true in warmer regions.
The quantity and quality of food, as well as the whitetail’s behavior, physiology and nutritional requirements change with the seasons. Here’s how it all comes together.
Countering the ravages of mother nature’s fury on Northern deer herds.
They’re hyped as a great way to help drivers on roads, but how effective are deer whistles to avoid vehicle collisions and do they really work?
Studies prove that observational deer herd estimates are highly unreliable for management strategies.
