Monitoring changes in white-tailed deer populations is an important but challenging part of management, in part because it can be hard to interpret the data when analyzing each stream one by one. In the featured article of the September issue of the Journal of Wildlife Management, the authors developed a population model using two streams of low-cost monitoring data — a road‐based spotlight count survey and a volunteer‐collected recruitment index — to gauge population status and estimate the effects of winter severity.

Other articles look at identifying and controlling for variation in canid harvest data, bighorn sheep survival following a pneumonia outbreak, sagebrush characteristics influencing pygmy rabbit foraging, the diet of dholes and more.
