Episode 26-Deer Rutting Season with Principal Biologist Dan Roberts

October 6, 2016

Fall marks the beginning of deer rutting season, a time of year when deer are especially active. New Jersey is home to over 101,000 deer, which can cause problems for motorists especially during their morning and evening commutes. Dan Roberts, principal wildlife biologist and leader of the white-tailed deer project here at DEP, joined Bob Bostock to discuss deer in New Jersey, DEP’s deer management policies, and how people can stay safe while on the road.
