IDFG whitetail study continues in Panhandle

| May 14, 2020 1:00 AM

In a study that began last year, Idaho Fish and Game finished its second year of monitoring whitetail deer in the Panhandle.

Deer captured and collared in Units 1, 6, and 10A will be monitored for survival, cause of death, and movement of bucks, does and first-year fawns.

The study when it’s completed will be the largest study of white-tailed deer in Idaho.

White-tailed deer are the most abundant large prey species in Panhandle and understanding their ecology is a key first step in the overall project, according to Fish and Game.
