The white-tailed deer research at the Auburn University School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences Deer Lab was recently the highlight of Deer & Deer Hunting magazine’s national cable television program, Destination Whitetail, aired on December 21 on the Sportsman Channel.

Wildlife Professor, Stephen Ditchkoff, and his research team, showcased their efforts at the Auburn Deer Lab to better understand deer behavior, reproductive health, biology and genetics. Along with Ditchkoff, research associate, Chad Newbolt, and graduate student, Carolyn Moore, shared the Deer Lab’s goals and research techniques with viewers.

In addition to the regularly scheduled features, the Deer Lab research team also contributes monthly to Deer & Deer Hunting magazine. States Ditchkoff, “Hopefully insights from our research on white-tailed deer behavior and biology can be useful for both hunters and wildlife managers across the U.S.”

Auburn University’s Deer Lab facilitates its research at the Captive Research Facility located in Camp Hill, AL and on public and privately owned land throughout the southeastern U.S.

Founded in 1977, Deer & Deer Hunting was America’s first whitetail-only publication. The popular TV show is entering its 12th season, and airs on Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m. ET.
