The collar looks very uncomfortable for this particular deer, but according to the biologist, the deer shouldn’t experience any serious issues.

There are approximately 80 deer with tracking collars in the area. Of that sample, only a few have shown irritation.

The study is exploring the where the deer spend the winters and summers, as well as their general range.
