Presentation summary: 

The Deer-Forest Study is a cooperative research project of the Pennsylvania Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit at Penn State, the Pennsylvania Game Commission and the Pennsylvania Bureau of Forestry. Each year up to 80 deer are fitted with satellite GPS collars that collect thousands of locations a year. Dr. Duane Diefenbach will share some insights into deer movement behavior as it relates to the fall hunting seasons and the rut. Find out how far and fast deer travel on state forests in the Big Woods of northcentral Pennsylvania and the ridges and valleys of central Pennsylvania. 

Presented by: Duane R. Diefenbach, Ph.D., Leader and Adjunct Professor of Wildlife Ecology, U.S. Geological Survey Pennsylvania Cooperative Fish & Wildlife Research Unit, Pennsylvania State University
