A Deer Population Model for Microcomputers

A white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) population model is described which utilizes numbers and the age structure of animals taken in either sex harvests to predict population levels, future harvests and harvest levels required to manage properly the populations. The model predicted Kentucky's deer harvest within 5.1% from 1980 through 1984. Model design, harvest management decisions, and microcomputer utilities are discussed.
