White-tailed Deer Habitat Evaluation and Management Guide
The purpose of this habitat evaluation and management guide is to provide a general tool for evaluating the suitability of an area for white-tailed deer. The guide is designed to help you inventory and evaluate various existing habitat components, plus identify habitat limiting factors for whitetailed deer. Habitat values indicate the overall habitat quality that the evaluated area provides in its existing condition and identify weak or missing elements that may limit deer numbers. Management alternatives can then be developed to correct the deficiency.
