UGA Deer Lab Shines at the International Deer Biology Congress

The 9th International Deer Biology Congress (IDBC) was held August 5-10, 2018 at the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park, Colorado.  The IDBC is a gathering of professionals interested in wild deer biology, management and farmed deer production with the goal of providing a forum to discuss common problems and share knowledge and experiences.  The first IDBC was held in New Zealand in 1983 and the meeting has since been hosted in the United States, United Kingdom, Hungary, Canada, Czech Republic, Chile and China.

Dr. Karl V. Miller served on the Scientific Steering Committee of the IDBC and the UGA Deer Lab was well represented at this year’s meeting.   Dr. Gino D’Angelo served as Chair of a symposium on the influence of predators on deer in North America.   Our faculty, staff, and graduate students presented or co-authored 12 scientific presentations and 2 scientific posters.  This was a wonderful opportunity for the UGA Deer Lab to engage with other professionals in the international deer community.
