Helicopter Helps With Doe And Fawn Survival Study

Helicopter Helps With Doe And Fawn Survival Study

A helicopter with trained wildlife wranglers flew over McCook and Lake counties earlier this month to assist with capturing 50 deer for the Department of Game, Fish and Parks' new doe and fawn survival study.

Regional wildlife manager Julie DeJong says GF&P over the last few weeks has connected with landowners and signed up more than 50,000 acres.

California-based Native Range Capture Services was hired to assist South Dakota wildlife biologists with capturing does to study their survival, as well as the survival of their spring fawns.

The helicopter crew included a pilot, a net gunner and a "mugger." The crew would shoot a net at deer, and the mugger would jump from the helicopter onto the ground to wrestle the deer to attach tracking devices.
