This working plan provides details of the research to be conducted on black-tailed deer (Odocoileus hemionus columbianus) and Roosevelt elk (Cervus elaphus roosevelti) winter habitat during the winter of 1984/85. The research goals were to determine what food and snowpack features are present in old-growth winter ranges as compared to other habitat types, to identify the relative importance of snow and forage in affecting winter habitat use, and to investigate the possibilities for creating deer winter ranges with young-stand management.
