MSU White-Tailed Deer Apps
Video by Michaela Parker
Chronic wasting disease is the hot topic in Mississippi’s deer-hunting circles, and for good reason. MSU Extension experts encourage deer hunters to participate in the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks program for sampling deer to get an idea of where the disease has spread.
However, there’s much more to the white-tailed deer season than CWD. Three MSU-developed apps can help you with food plots, aging deer, and managing your hunts.
The Deer Aging App helps hunters determine the age of live deer “on the hoof” as well post-harvest through jaw bone analysis.
The Deer Hunt App allows deer managers to use their cell phones to record the number of deer they saw, number of mature bucks, and the ratio of bucks, does and fawns. Hunters can also record their harvest data after a successful hunt.
Learn more about these apps, as well as the Deer Food Plot app by clicking here.
Plus, MSU Deer Lab experts Dr. Bronson Strickland (MSU Extension Service) and Dr. Steve Demaris (MSU Forest & Wildlife Research Center) host the Deer University podcast to delve into all sorts of deer-related topics, from what trees to plant to deer movement patterns and even to CWD.
