This report discusses the nutritional and intake requirements of the major big game ungulates of North America. Forage intake rates for the various species are detailed, and major factors governing intake rates are discussed. The importance of forage nutritional value as much as quantity is emphasized, and both biotic and abiotic factors influencing forage quality are presented. Methods of forage protection and improvement are briefly defined.
