During the summer of 1955 between the dates June 16 and August 20, a secondary study was made on the species of mule deer, Odocoileus hemionus. Three objectives were kept in the foreground throughout this study: 1) to study the ecology of the mule deer in its natural, unrestricted habitat; 2) to observe the social behavior patterns found in this species; and 3) to familiarize the reader, as well as the writer, with the typical habitats and activities of the mule deer. The areas studied were combined into one term, the Teton Wilderness Area, for simplicity. Project Number 85.
