Ballards may be weaker,

Great story of a very unusual deer and trip! For such a young buck, he seemed awfully savvy on how to move, and when to move!

I heard that on the radio on the way to a match earler this month.  Just happened to remember the name of the organization so looked it up.  Glad you guys found it interesting. 

To bad he went and died.

Yes, all that walking, just to get somewhere he caught blue tongue and died.

It's a good thing he died, we don't need deer that smart breeding and proliferating. We would never be able to catch up and kill one of them.

Fascinating link! A couple years ago signaled the end of the 10 year MIPP study here in Michigan’s UP. The acronym denotes Michigan Predator Prey study focusing of whitetail predation/mortality from  winter, wolves, bears, coyotes, bobcats, and even a fisher kill. The last 4 years of the study was the HEAVY snowfall area of the northwestern UP…..literally in my backyard. I helped the “kids” as I called them whenever possible. I learned some really cool things about the deer in my area, especially the migration patterns. A lot of The deer that winter on “my” hill, come from nearly 50 miles away on the south Lake Superior coast. I am still waiting for the study results to be posted.
