Abstract

Herd reduction is often proposed as a solution to the conflicts between humans and white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) in urban and suburban areas. However, the effects of herd reductions on the remaining deer have not been documented. We used radiotelemetry to study the effects of a 50% localized herd reduction by examining the winter (January) and spring (March) home range sizes of 21 adult does in 2 areas tone treated, one control) on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, during 2 years (pre-treatment vs. post-treatment). Because of public opposition to lethal methods, most deer (n=40) were removed by live-capture, transport, and confinement. Repeated measure ANOVA revealed significant (P=0.006) seasonal differences in home range size; January home range sizes were larger than March home range sizes for deer in both areas and in both years. The analysis also indicated that within seasons, home range sizes between the treated and control areas did not differ (P=0.17) in 1996 (pre-treatment) but did differ (P=0.008) in 1997 (post-treatment). Seasonal home range sizes for adult does in the treated areaincreased an average of 30%; home ranges for does in the control area remained relatively unchanged. Managers should be aware of the potential for increased home range sizes following deer-herd reduction
