During spring break in March of 2012, I went to Berks County for three days to help out in a deer study looking at reasons for mortality, and I also assisted wildlife aids in banding waterfowl. The two species which we banded were mallards and American black ducks. The deer were captured using two methods; rocket nets and drop nets. The work was very intense and thrilling, and it is quite challenging your first few times trying to calm a deer to have a radio transmitter attached around its neck.
