SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks is conducting a white-tailed deer fawn survival study to learn more about the deer population in southeastern South Dakota.

Biologist Julie DeJong says the study involves capturing fawns in the spring in Lincoln and Turner counties and attaching radio transmitters. Biologists will use spotlight vehicle searches and daytime ground searches through June 20.

The radio-collared fawns will be monitored once every ten to 14 days through June 2014 to make sure they’re still alive. DeJong says the goal is to quantify annual fawn survival rates and learn more about reproduction and recruitment rates.

The data will help GF&P form population estimates.

Anyone who knows of fawn locations in the two counties is asked to call 605-362-2700.
