Collecting Data for Quality Deer Management

  1. 1. By Courtland Lee Rudolph
  2. 2.  An Auburn University alumnus, Courtland Lee Rudolph joined Bank of America Merrill Lynch more than three decades ago and now serves as the vice president of Merrill Lynch Municipal Markets in Tampa, Florida. He oversees municipal bond market activities for the southeast region of the United States. Aside from his career, Courtland Lee Rudolph is an avid hunter and a member of the Quality Deer Management Association. The Quality Deer Management Association promotes ethical deer hunting and the conservation of healthy deer herds. Knowing that these efforts help provide good hunting for them, responsible hunters cooperate in the following ways:
  3. 3.  1. To track specific groups of deer and how the herd improves over time, hunters record the weight and gender of their kills and where they shot them. 2. Tracking fawn recruitment is an important gauge of the potential growth of the herd. Hunters therefore check does for lactation. This must be done before the peak of the rut to determine the likelihood of a doe’s fawn surviving that year. 3. Healthier deer have kidneys covered generously in fat. To collect data on kidney fat, hunters cut the fat off the organ at each end. Any fat that falls off gets discarded, while the remaining fat is peeled off and weighed.
