WHITE-TAILED DEER

HARVEST REPORT
Most of the programs described in this report are funded through the Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Program. This program was initiated in 1937 as the Federal Aid In Wildlife Act and created a system whereby taxes are paid on firearms, ammunition and archery equipment by the public who hunts. Today this excise tax generates over a hundred million dollars each year that are dedicated to state wildlife restoration and management projects across the United States. The State of Vermont uses these monies for acquiring land, and for restoring and managing wildlife. These excise tax dollars, coupled with state hunting license fees, have been the predominant source of money funding the successful restoration and management of Vermonts wildlife resources.

2011 White-tailed deer report


Overview
Hunters harvested a total of 12,132 deer over the four Vermont deer seasons in 2011. The buck harvest of 7,374 is 13% less than the 2010 total of 8,430 (Figure 1). We estimated there would be a 10% decrease in the deer population due to the severity of the 2011 winter. In response to the projected decline, muzzleloader season antlerless permits were reduced by 63% to reduce the potential antlerless harvest by an estimated 1,800 deer. Antlered bucks comprised 61% of the total harvest with adult does making up 31%. Antlerless bucks and fawn does each added 4% to the 2011 harvest (Figure 2). Hunters took 48% of the deer harvest in Rifle Season, 22% in Archery Season, 17% in Muzzleloader Season, and 13% in Youth Season (Figure 3).

Adding to the overall decrease in deer harvest were the difficult hunting conditions caused by abundant and wide-spread fall foods and very warm and dry weather. Without these conditions the buck harvest decrease would likely have been closer to the estimated 10% than the actual decrease of 13%. Table 1 illustrates the harvest totals and percent harvests over all four seasons. Town-by-town results for each season can be found in Table 6 at the end of this document. Many large deer were again harvested in Vermont (see Table 7 also at the end of this document).

season results
archery season Archers harvested a total of 2,618 deer during the split 32day season (23 days in October 23 and 9 days in December). Adult does comprise the majority of the harvest (67%). Antlered bucks comprised 20% with antlerless bucks making up 5% and fawn does the remaining 8% of the harvest (Figure 4). This usually cold period of the archery season often accounts for less than 5% of the archery harvest. However, in 2011 this period accounted for 9% (230 deer) with 14 of those deer (0.6%) registered as antlered bucks. The mild December weather may have persuaded hunters to sit in their tree stands more often.

Youth season Youth hunters, those hunters under the age of 16 prior to the season having passed their hunter safety exam and accompanied by a licensed, unarmed adult mentor, harvested a total of 1,622 deer during the 2-day season occurring the first weekend in November 2011. Antlered bucks comprised 32% of the harvest with 71% determined to be yearlings (Figure 5). Of all antlered bucks examined, 66% of them were spike bucks. Adult does were 46% of the harvest, fawn does were 12%, and antlerless bucks made up 10% of the harvest (Figure 5).

Youth Season is an important data collection period. Because youths may harvest one deer of either sex, the harvest is likely more representative of the larger deer population with respect to age and sex than the other deer seasons. The Youth Season allows biologists to measure weight, antlers, age, and sex of all deer and Adult Does - 744 not just a portion of those with antlers. We examined 503 deer at 46% of Harvest 24 designated biological-check stations. The stations were identified in predetermined locations to satisfy statistical needs. The distribution of ages (determined by tooth cementum annulation) from check station data indicates yearling bucks were 71% of the buck harvest with 2.5 year-olds comprising nearly 23% (Figure 6). Female age distribution was typically more consistent across the first five age classes. Two important measurements of deer population health are yearling antler beam diameter and fawn weights. The mean antler beam diameter of 128 yearling bucks was 16.1 millimeters. The mean dressed weight 80 for female fawns was 70 56.2 pounds and 64.2 60 pounds for male fawns. Mean weights for all age 50 classes (by tooth wear and 40 replacement) are reported in Table 2. 30

harvested a total of 5,759 bucks during the traditional 16 days ending the weekend after Thanksgiving. Hunter effort surveys were mailed to 5,000 randomly selected Vermont hunters again in 2011. This survey helps measure the number of hunters hunting, hours spent afield, and deer and moose sighted while hunting. Sighting data are used to monitor moose and deer population trends. There were 1,098 returned surveys with 21% reporting they did not hunt in 2011. Hunters reported an average of 46.2 hours afield in 2011. This average is approximately 3 more hours per season than reported in 2010. As has been the case every year of the survey since 1999, the opening weekend was responsible for the greatest buck harvest relative to the amount of effort expended (Figure 7). Results of the survey also highlight the importance of the weekend days contribution to the hunters available hunting time (Figure 8). Hunters reported seeing an average of 1.76 deer per 10 hours afield (Table 3). This is 21% less than the rate reported in 2010 (2.22 deer/10 hours). However, the 2011 buck sighting rate of 0.20 bucks per 10 hours afield did not decrease as much compared to the 2010 rate of 0.23 (13%).

The winter of 2011 was one of the more severe winters Vermont has experienced when considering the lateness of persistent snow. The WSI of 69 was 28% greater than the long-term average of 54 (black line) and one of four winters at or above the average severity in the last five years (Figure 10). As a result, we estimated a 10% decrease in the deer population, suggesting hunters could likely experience a corresponding deer harvest decrease in 2011. Responding to this projection we recommended a reduction of antlerless deer permits by 63% from the previous year to initiate growth in the States deer population.

A total of 9,575 permits were authorized by the Fish and Wildlife Board in 14 20 of the 24 Wildlife Management Units (WMUs). Those units not recommended 0 for antlerless permits were largely in the Mountain and Northeast Highland habitats of Vermont where winter was especially severe on an already low Figure 10. Vermont Winter Severity Index 1990 2011 density population. WMU Q also did not receive any permits due to a deer population estimated to be less than its long-term goal. As mandated by statute, landowners received first preference, with 10% of the remaining permits reserved for non-residents, and the remainder distributed by lottery to resident applicants. Permit holder success varied from a high of 26.9% in WMU D1 to a low of 12.3% in WMU F2 (Table 4).
