I have done a deer survey with 3 cameras on my 320 acre farm.  I have 570 pictures of does, 43 fawns, and 102 bucks.  This was over the first 3 weeks of August.  How do I go about projecting the actual number of deer based on my camera survey?




I have posted step-by-step instructions for conducting a herd survey.

The steps K through M provide detailed instructions of how to estimate the number of deer, the adult sex ratio, etc., based on the data you’ve collected.

Camera surveys are great tools!
