The flash of the whitetail of a deer bounding across the road is a common sight in Iowa. Many people in the state of Iowa value white-tailed deer simply because of there presence. Most lowans enjoy the aesthetic value of seeing these graceful animals along roadsides and in woodlands, parks, and farm fields. In additions deer offer numerous recreational opportunities including nature watching, photography, and hunting. Deer hunting recreation anually makes $30.6 million for lowa.
The white-tailed deer (Obdocoileus virginianus) is Iowa’s largest existing native mammal. The white underside of the tail, for which this deer is named, is its most distinctive characteristic. While-tailed deer stand 35 to 38 inches tall, although they may appear taller because of their long legs and slender bodies. Deer have an excellent sense of smell and their hearing is well-developed. Their eye-sight is fair, and they have poor color vision. However, they can easily detect movement. Iowa white-tailed deer have higher reproductive rates than those found in some other areas because of the high quality habitat.
Deer populations increased dramatically across eastern North America during the 1980s and 1990s. At the same time, their natural habitat was greatly reduced as a result of the continuing expansion of urban areas and conversion of native landscapes to agriculture. The remaining deer habitat became stressed by the high population densities. Protected areas, such as state preserves, forests, and county and state parks, began showing stress. More problems related to the high deer numbers became evident as agricultural crops suffered damage from deer traveling from the safety of the preserves to the fields to eat. The most recent development has been problems associated with deer in expanding urban environments. Ornamental trees and shrubs in residential and commercial areas suffer damage as deer seek alternative food sources. In addition to damaging landscape plantings, the increased deer activity can cause property damage in vehicle-deer collisions. The possibility of deer transmitting diseases to humans and other animals also is a concern. Compounding these problems is the controversy surrounding hunting as a means of managing deer populations.
