Abstract

The conflicting problem involving the herds of mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus) are of major interest throughout Utah. Individuals who are affected the most are sportsman, ranchers, fruit growers, sanitation engineers, home owners, federal administrators, and big game managers. Mainly, the problem arise as a result of insufficient forage, especially on the winter range. Here, factors such as increased deer numbers, decreased range productivity, severe winters, and expanded agricultural activity make more acute the problem of a naturally critical season.
