To date as of the last report..( i may be off a tad)

284 Deer have been collared or ear tagged. I believe 12 were ear tagged.

133 Mortalities have been documented since Jan of 2015

Approx 27 collars have dropped off after expiring in the field

Approx 34 deer of the 284 have died due to stress of the capture process.(approx 12%)

2 Deer were killed w collars by hunters.

    NOTE... those 34 that died of stress are not part of the 133 they are not counted in the study.
