We examined hypotheses regarding compatibility of managing white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) populations for trophy males (i.e., ≥8 points) and maximum sustained yield (MSY) harvests. Harvest of white-tailed deer on Oak Ridge Reservation, Tennessee, USA, began in 1985 following 45 years of protection. We examined several harvest characteristics (e.g., age and sex composition, antler and body size of males) under the assumption that the population had attained an equilibrium during this… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

POPULATION MODELS FOR WHITE-TAILED DEER IN THE BLACK HILLS OF SOUTH DAKOTA
Models were developed for the white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) population inhabiting the Black Hills of western South Dakota. Three sets of models were created using harvest data from 1997Expand
Chronic Wasting Disease: Transmission Mechanisms and the Possibility of Harvest Management
TLDR
The results show that, despite uncertainties, a modelling approach can determine classes of harvest strategy that are most likely to be effective in combatting CWD. Expand
Assessing factors affecting adult female white-tailed deer survival in the Northern Great Plains
TLDR
Predation was the main source of mortality for adult females in this study, with coyotes being the sole predator capable of depredation in the Northern Great Plains region of the USA. Expand
Effects of harvest, culture, and climate on trends in size of horn‐like structures in trophy ungulates
TLDR
A weight-of-evidence approach was used based on differences among trophy categories in life-history characteristics, geographic distribution, morphological attributes, and harvest regimes to discriminate among competing hypotheses for explaining long-term trends in horn and antler size of trophy ungulates, and provide directions for future research. Expand
Effect of Population Demographics and Social Pressures on White-Tailed Deer Dispersal Ecology
TLDR
The results fail to support inbreeding avoidance and support sexual competition as a cause of autumn dispersal at Chesapeake Farms. Expand
REPORTING-RATE VARIABILITY AND PRECISION OF WHITE-TAILED DEER HARVEST ESTIMATES IN PENNSYLVANIA
TLDR
This work modeled reporting rates of white-tailed deer harvest to determine whether they varied by year, deer management unit (DMU), type of deer (antlered or antlerless), or sex, and recommended regular estimation of reporting rates and caution against assuming a constant reporting rate. Expand
RETRACTED: Population and Trophy Quality Trends of Three Gregarious Herbivores in an Insulated Semi-Arid Savanna Ecosystem (Cawston Ranch, Zimbabwe), 1997–2014
Long term monitoring of population estimates and trophy size trends is needed to ensure that trophy hunting is sustainable. We explored the influence of trophy hunting on population size and trophyExpand
Daily movements of female white-tailed deer relative to parturition and breeding.
Abstract: To assess how white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) herd demographics influence reproductive behaviors, we examined 24-h diel movements of female whitetailed deer relative toExpand
Seasonal movements of female white-tailed deer in a low-density population
IN A LOW-DENSITY POPULATION by GINO JUDE D’ANGELO (Under the Direction of Karl V. Miller) ABSTRACT I captured, radiocollared, and tracked the daily movements of 13 female white-tailed deerExpand
Antler Size of Alaskan Moose Alces Alces Gigas: Effects of Population Density, Hunter Harvest and Use of Guides
TLDR
It is argued that understanding population density in relation to carrying capacity (K) and the age structure of males is necessary to interpret potential consequences of harvest on the genetics of moose and other large herbivores and may be useful in managing and modelling moose populations.
