The UGA Deer Lab has conducted research related to whitetail genetics across the United States and within specific deer populations.

  • In a publication by The Quality Deer Management Association, we researched and documented the dates, locations and stocking sources for whitetail translocations in the U.S.


  • We determined genetic variability in whitetails as related to reproductive characteristics.


  • We examined the effects of a genetic bottleneck on a restocked deer population.


  • We examined genetics as related to the social structure of doe groups within a population.
