Deer Habitat Management in Eastern Forests
Abstract:Deer habitat management in Eastern forests is concerned primarily with the management of deer food. But the present capability of such management to solve food problems has consistently been overestimated. Current management practices are of questionable value because data about their specific effects on deer are generally lacking. A research process which includes major research tasks arranged in a natural and logical progression and which leads to the development of reliable systems of deer-food management, is proposed as one method of solving current problems.
