The article discusses the proper approach for the survival of mule deer population in the western part of the U.S. The Colorado State Division of Wildlife conducted a five year study headed by researcher Chad Bishop that compared the survival rate of deer in two groups. One group was given extra supply of food during winter season and the fawns in the treated area showed 46% of survival rate while the other group recorded 28%. Bishop stated that predation contributes to the declining population of deer which is caused by the poor food supply available in their habitat. In addition, the Colorado Mule Deer Association has initiated a coyote control program, which focuses on the restoration and conservation of the habitat of deer and other endangered species.
