Ninety white-tailed deer are grazing and running around in various parts of Alabama with distinctive collars around their necks. Those collars come in two colors, orange and brown, and the difference in colors is extremely important.
DO NOT shoot the orange-collared deer, please. The deer with brown collars have no such restriction, according to Dr. Stephen Ditchkoff at Auburn University, which is conducting studies on the collared deer through its white-tailed deer research program.
