Yes. There were quite a few deer harvested that were reported. I will post these numbers when I get them.

Here are the number of collared deer that died this past season:

Since the beginning of bow season in October, we had 18 hunter-related mortalities and zero natural mortalities. The observed mortalities included legal harvests (13), illegal harvests (4), and an unknown harvest (1). A mortality was considered a “legal harvest” if it was known to have occurred by legal methods during legal season dates. A mortality was considered an “illegal harvest” if the harvest was known to have occurred outside the legal season dates or in an area where the hunter was not authorized to hunt (i.e. safety zone or private property). We had 1 “unknown harvest” which could have occurred by legal means, however the deer was not checked in and the collar was found cut and lying in the woods, which might also imply illegality.

Of these mortalities, 8 were bucks and 10 were does. Harvested bucks ranged in age from 2.5-4.5 years-old and harvested does ranged from 2.5-6.5+ years-old, which is fairly representative of the sex and age distribution we had collared and available for harvest. Looking at the harvests by study site, 4 occurred at Barbour WMA, 6 were at Oakmulgee WMA, 4 in Marengo County, and 4 in Pickens County.

Just curious about the percentage of collared deer that were harvested? It would be real interesting to see the numbers by age and sex.

Thanks for the info.

Right now the data are way too preliminary and the sample sizes are too small to draw any conclusions. Sorry, but I would prefer to provide more detailed information after a second year of study, and after the data have been analyzed.

Also, just to keep some of ya'll patient.
I'm sure Dr.D can't really release any of the major findings to the general public until after he has reported the findings to the various agencies and academic institutions involved in the study. That takes time ya'll, be patient.

I have several of these deer on my game cameras. They are on there just about every time I check them. I have both does and bucks with both the colors of collars. I can't wait to see the data also.

Sorry for not responding...I haven't been on in a while.

Not much to update at the moment. The students had 90 collars out at the end of the summer season. they worked extremely hard to get all the collars out. Now...we wait. We will be documenting mortalities, as well as collecting the movement data from the collars at the end of the season. It will still be a while after that to compile, analyze, interpret, and prepare reports.

So, I'm sorry to say, everyone is going to have to be extremely patient.

Sorry to say but my 13yr old son shot #8 Saturday the 23rd. He was a nice 8 point. He said he feel asleep and when he woke up and looked in the field he seen a nice rack and a heart shot standing behind a pine tree. He said he never seen the collar or ear tags because his head was behind a tree. I got on him pretty good about it. We both went from top of the mountain high to rock bottom when we seen the orange collar. He shot the deer in linden. Sorry I don't know how to post pics or I would.

I don't know how to post pictures. The reason I'm upset is because the land owner told us to shoot anything we wanted except a collared deer. I know what my son did wasn't against the law, but when a man gives you free range on his land you need to respect it and him! He learned a very good lesson in this.
