  • Mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus) populations throughout the west appear to be declining, whereas white- tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) populations are increasing. We compared abundance, number of fetuses per female (maternity rate), recruitment, and cause-specific adult ( ♢1 year old) mortality rate for sympatric mule deer and white- tailed deer in south-central British Columbia to assess population growth for each species. White-tailed deer were three times more abundant (908 ± 152) than… CONTINUE READING
