  2. 6 modules
  3. video based teaching
  4. Deer and habitat biology, management, etc...

The 2018 Whitetail Report listed what states use to manage deer

  1. Michigan uses deer herd health, hunter opportunity, car deer accidents and crop damage.
  2. Seems as if insurance industry issues have a heavy hand in management of our deer instead of sound science.
  3. Numbers and questions can be skewed to gain any point of view that researcher wants
  4. The nation is shooting less does on a whole
  5. First time since 1999 that nation has shot more bucks than does

More dead deer found on Mike's property, looks like they were starving.

The guys are getting ready to attend the Michigan Deer Summit
