This study, part of the West-Central B.C. Caribou Research Project, was to determine the seasonal movements, habitat use and food habits of the woodland caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou) especially during winter. Seasonal movements and habitat use of radio-collared caribou were monitored bi-weekly from December to March and every 2-3 weeks from April to November. Winter food habits and feeding site characteristics were determined by following caribou tracks and comparing feeding craters to areas where caribou did not crater.
