Managing Deer Populations
In recent years, white-tailed deer have
adapted to changing environments in Midwestern
states and have greatly multiplied in numbers.
Deer are a pest in many rural and urban areas
today, causing significant economic impacts
and posing a human safety hazard, especially
in collisions with cars.
NIFA contributes administrative coordination
for a multistate
team of researchers in the Midwest and
Northeast that is developing land and deer
management techniques to reduce these harmful
effects. The team is seeking to understand
how land-use factors affect deer distribution
