The number of fawns that sur- vive their first winter is a signif- icant factor in the population trends FWP observes year-to- year. "Tracking the number of fawns that survive through the winter in relationship to the total number of adults give us impor- tant information. Coupled with buck-to-doe ratios collected in early winter, our surveys help us to spot population trends and adjust our hunting regulations accordingly," Herbert said. The surveys are conducted across the state on 13 census areas and 67 trend areas. And, while most showed promise in last spring's surveys, there are some areas of concern. "In a few areas we're seeing what may be early indications that mule deer numbers have peaked and start- to excellent ed down," Herbert said. In the Bridger Mountains, for example, some populations have declined a bit even with relative- ly favorable conditions. In other areas near Bozeman dry condi- tions last year combined with heavier, late winter snow reduced fawn surviwd, in some cases for the second year. "How these situations play out depends a lot on how dry it is late summer and early fall in these areas and how harsh this coming winter is," Herbert said. In FWP Region 7, Miles City and the surrounding area precip- itation in April, May and June dramatically improved wildlife forage. The outlook for mule deer populations in FWP Region 7 is good to excellent. Hunters can expect to see good hunting opportunities for both older aged and younger bucks, while doe hunting opportunities will vary by area depending on late summer and fall moisture. :ilii Region seven's mule deer outlook is rated good to excellent for the 2003 season. - Sept. 6 - Deer & Elk - - Oct. 26 - general _ Oct. 12 - - Sept, 15 - Spring _ April 15- ~'lqighwood Satur- opener, Lam- Squad suffered a ineers. ~0 after the first initial score ~CCurred in the sec- ff play as Nathan with Brett 36-yard touch- conversion by season is Sidney Herald to utilize our help us post manner.
