Boys Ranch Deer Survey

Boys Ranch students ready for an evening of spotting for deer.

In September the wildlife management class, taught by instructor Tim Nation, spent evenings out looking for deer across the 12,000 acre campus.  Students used spotlights to locate the deer at night and then had to use their knowledge of deer species to determine if the deer were mule or white tale.

The data collected by the students will be shared with the local state biologist to calculate the health of the local deer population.

The seating apparatus used in the deer survey was designed and built by students in the advanced welding class.
