Crop Damage By White-Tailed Deer In The Southeast

A survey of state wildlife resource agencies in the Southeast was conducted regarding deer crop damage problems during 1977. Affected crops were listed and the extent and degree of damage was evaluated by each agency. Methods used for alleviating deer crop damage were outlined. Antlerless deer harvest during legal hunting seasons was reported to be the most successful damage control measure practiced, however, most states utilized a combination of procedures. Deer season lengths, bag limits, and 1977-78 deer harvest data in the Southeast were summarized.
