While the buck'-to-doe ratio of 0.45 (0.54 in 2009) was similar to the long-term average of 0.43 bucks per doe, the fawn-to-doe ratio of 0.72 (0.74 in 2009) equaled the lowest on record, and was well below the long-term average of 0.94 fawns per doe. This year's fawn produc- tion was the same as in 1997, fol- lowing one of the worst winters on record. The fall aerial survey, conducted specifically to study demographics, covers 24 study areas and 306 square miles in western North Dakota. Biologists survey the same study areas in the spring of each year to determine a population index.
