I'm a private lands wildlife and habitat management consultant. My personal research is geared towards whitetailed deer management and behavior issues. As part of my job, I keep up with all the latest university research.

That's the complete opposite of what I've read and heard. I've read somethings on seasonal movement and home ranges. But seen nothing that proves it. But if that is the case then how can you pattern a deer with trail cams?? If that is the case how can genes be passed down?? I mean your point has a lot flaws. 18000 acres is a ton of land. Miles and miles

Then you've read and heard erroneous information.

This is a new field of study. That data has only been available in the scientific community for a couple of years, and yours truly is one of the few people involved in the research who is trying to bring that information to the hunting public.


 Quote:

Most of the time, you can't pattern bucks with trail-cameras, unless the habitat forces very specific movement patterns (travel corridor options are sharply limited due to lots of surrounding open landscape). Try patterning a buck in big unbroken hilly hardwoods. Darn near impossible. But then I don't use trail-cameras to pattern deer. I use them for the purpose they were originally invented for--to assess local deer population and herd structure.

What genes exactly? Every time two deer mate, genes are being passed down.

Sure is. And that's why those findings were so amazing (determined by having deer wearing GPS collars that collect a GPS position hourly and accurate to 7 meters).

Well sounds like you data is accurate i need to watch what i read better then. But still back on trail camera's i don't agree with them. I think they do a whole lot more harm then good.

BSK, how does one get your job? I have a biology degree and have always wondered how to get into a field like yours.

Just remember, when it comes to real biological knowledge, most outdoor writer, and virtually every TV hunting personality, doesn't know squat. They may be very good hunters, but they know diddly about biology.

I would have to say I was just really lucky. At the same time, the best way into a very competitive field is having some unique skill that has wildlife management implications. I was hired into a consulting group because of my unique skills with GIS and digital mapping technology.

You are WAY to modest Bryan - Way -

Bryan has authored books and hundreds of articles on this subject - his - 'authority' on the subject is without question -

That's why BSK is the 'go to' guy on this subject here -

If you wont toot it Bryan I know a couple of thousand members here that will \:\)
