Penn State's Deer Research Center studies herd health options

White tail deer studies at Penn State can be traced back to the 1920s. Throughout the years, a variety of research initiatives have focused on improvements in nutrition as well as studies in buck and doe growth, healthy reproduction cycles and humane repellents and fencing to protect forest regeneration. Current research at the facility includes a collaborative effort with the National Wildlife Research Center in Fort Collins, Colorado. This study focuses on the overpopulation of deer herds in more urban areas. For more information about deer research at Penn State, visit www.das.psu.edu online.
