Re: new study

Very interesting.

In the east, starvation (47%) was the leading cause of fawn mortality, followed by disease (21%), coyote predation (10%) and domestic dog, hunter harvest, unrecovered harvest and bobcat (5% each).

The high rate of fawn starvation in the eastern farmland region generally considered good deer habitat leads to questions about the quality and availability of browse.

Habitat also is critical as shelter and cover for deer, including from the elements and from predators.

Cool read.
Very interesting that hunters are still the primary cause of deer mortality.
We have a lot of people here that don't think that's happening.
We need a study! Lol
