Introduction

Deer and elk are the most popular big game animals in North America. New Zealand and Scandinavian countries have important deer and elk industries. In addition to their economic and social value as game animals, their beauty and grace make them valuable as watchable wildlife for the nonhunting public as well. White-tailed deer are found throughout the United States in brushy bottoms and wooded areas. Mule deer inhabit the rolling plains and mountains of the West. The majestic elk, often considered a western species, has now been reintroduced to historic ranges in the East.
