Sika Deer Study in Dorchester County
Attention Sika Deer Hunters
Please note that there is a sika deer study going on in Dorchester County run by University of Delaware and Maryland Department of Natural Resources. Deer involved in the study are marked with white ear tags and metal ear tags in each ear. Some deer are also equipped with radio tracking collars. These deer can be harvested in accordance with Maryland State hunting regulations. Any deer harvested can be kept by the hunter.
We would like to know about the harvest of any marked sika deer involved in this study. If a collared animal is harvested we will need to collect information on the animal (especially the location of the harvest) and retrieve the collar. These animals are located throughout the county on both public and private lands.
Information gathered from this study will aid in a better understanding of the survival of sika deer. Other aspects of the study include movement of males and habitat use. All information will be published in 2010 and will aid the Department of Natural Resources in better managing the sika deer population for sustainable hunting.
Thank you for your help.
