Feeding Habits and Forage Requirements of Rocky Mountain Mule Deer in the Sierra Nevada Mountains
Abstract:The author reports his observations of the habits of deer in seeking food and of their forage preferences. He considers it as important to assure deer adequate natural supplies of feed as the passage of protective laws, and that game refuges cannot be selected intelligently unless their resources for feed, water, shelter, and protection against enemies are satisfactory.
