Home range and movement of five muledeer in a semi desert grass-shrub community

Home range and movement of five muledeer in a semi desert grass-shrub community

US Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Forest and Range Experiment Station, Research Note (RM-355): 6

The home ranges of five desert mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus crooki) were determined on the Santa Rita Experimental Range, Arizona between May 1975 and June 1976. Home range averaged 2.9 square miles, but varied for individual deer by season, sex, and age class. The area of activity within the home range was smallest during the spring and early summer and largest during the winter breeding season. The collared deer were found to be nonmigratory and restricted to the Experimental Range.
