How Deer Use Terrain To Thermoregulate

Show Notes

On this episode of the Nine Finger Chronicles, Dan talks with deer habitat specialist Jon Teater about how deer use a variety of terrain features to keep cool in warm weather and warm is cold weather and using that information to locate ambush points. Jon talks about specific locations for both early season and late season bedding, how water can impact their thermoregulation, soil temperature, tree canopy, and stem count. This is one of those episodes that will give you one more thing to think about when trying to locate deer in general or a shooter buck. We love episodes like this, enjoy!
