Radio Signals to Track Mule Deer

Detailed Description

USGS Wyoming Unit student Matt Hayes listens for radio signals from mule deer along their migration corridor. Researchers locate animals in early winter to see who still has a fawn with them. Most are on winter range, but some, like this one, are still migrating. Photograph credit: Matthew Kauffman, USGS
