Density, activity and movement patterns over a managed white-tailed deer herd

Kelly is using camera traps to survey spatial and temporal changes in white-tailed deer populations residing within the Mianus River Gorge preserve. The goal of this project is to determine if deer management programs have reduced local deer population density and if current management strategies can eventually achieve a deer population density of approximately 5.8 deer per square kilometer; a goal which would allow for advanced forest regeneration within the Bedford, New York area.
