Declining populations of mule deer in Kansas and the Great Plains are of concern to state management agencies. The Kansas Unit with collaborators are measuring survival, home range, movements, and resource selection of male mule deer and white-tailed deer in western Kansas to determine the relative influence of white-tailed deer on mule deer ecology and population demograph.
