Deer--Minnesota; White-tailed deer--Minnesota
The white-tailed deer has been studied by wildlife biologists throughout its range. Additional information is required for improved management of deer in Minnesota and elsewhere. With the permission and cooperation of military authorities, deer studies have been established within the seventy square mile Camp Ripley Military Reservation and State Game Refuge near Little Falls, Minnesota. The accessibility of the area, large deer population, and habitat conditions offered an excellent location for the proposed studies. In addition, the relatively complete control of hunter use of the Camp was a decided advantage in conducting big game research.
Some of the research work is rather routine. Most of it, however, requires diligent study and is designed to provide information whereby one can better understand the intricate habits and the life history of deer in this region. A brief discussion of the various studies being undertaken in Camp Ripley will provide some concept of the work which is being done and the reasons for doing it.
