Can Blackberries Save Fawns? And Other Cool Findings From Coyote and Fawn Research

April 19, 2023 By: NDA Staff

In this episode of the Deer Season 365 podcast, we’re talking with Mike Muthersbaugh and Alex Jensen, who are both researchers and Ph.D. candidates at Clemson University, about the large-scale fawn and coyote research project they’ve been working on. We do a deep dive into what they’ve learned along the way, including what doe and fawn behavior leads to increased risk of predation, what habitat characteristics improve fawn survival, as well as a favorite summer coyote food source besides fawns that may surprise you.
