25 things that are actually really frustrating about living in alaska

Sitka black-tailed deer are cousins to the larger Columbia black-tailed deer of the Pacific Northwest, and both are closely related to the even larger mule deer of the American West. The Sitka black-tailed deer Odocoileus hemionus sitkensis is smaller, stockier, and has a shorter face than other members of the black-tailed group. Sitka black-tailed deer are closely related to the larger Columbia black-tailed deer of the Pacific Northwest, and both are considered subspecies of the even larger mule deer of the American West.

Fawns are born in early June and weigh pounds at birth. The average October weight of adults is about 80 pounds for females does and pounds for males bucksalthough bucks of over pounds have been reported. The summer coat of reddish-brown is replaced by dark brownish gray in winter.

Normal adult antler development is three points on each side. Antlers are relatively small, with very few scoring more than points by the Boone and Crockett system.

Event information

The average life-span of a Sitka black-tail is about 10 years, but some live as long as 15 years. Sitka black-tail fawns are born in late spring, following the breeding season in late November.

Breeding bucks spend little time foraging and by late November have used up much of their fat reserve, while does generally enter December in prime condition. Does breed during their second year of life and continue producing fawns annually until they reach 10 or 12 years of age. Prime-age does years typically produce two fawns annually. Summer and early fall are periods of active foraging as deer accumulate fat reserves to help get them through the winter and early spring.

Event information

With the first s of winter, usually the first heavy frost, deer in higher alpine and subalpine areas descend to upper elevations of the rain forest. Deer populations in Alaska are dynamic and fluctuate considerably with the severity of winters. Mild winters generally allow for an increase in the population, but a particularly harsh winter typically spells decline for the population.

During summer, deer generally feed on herbaceous vegetation and the green leaves of shrubs. In winter they are restricted to evergreen forbs and woody browse.

General description

When snow is not a problem, deer prefer evergreen forbs such as bunchberry and trailing bramble. During periods of deep snow, deer eat woody browse such as blueberry, yellow cedar and hemlock, and arboreal lichens. This browse alone, however, is not an adequate diet and deer rapidly deplete their energy reserves when restricted to such a limited diet. Deer thrive on a mixed diet. These browsers eat the leaves and stems of woody plants and shrubs, as well as forbs — perennial and bucks Anchorage dating green forest plants. Unlike grazers such as cattle, sheep and bison, they very rarely eat grass.

They do graze on emerging sedges on beaches during a short window in the spring. The Sitka black-tailed deer is native to the wet coastal rain forests of Southeast Alaska and north-coastal British Columbia. Its range has expanded as a result of transplants, and established populations now exist near Yakutat, in Prince William Sound, and on Kodiak and Afognak Islands. While virtually all of Southeast Alaska was covered in ice 18, years ago during the last glacial maximum, refugia did exist on Prince of Wales, Dall Island and areas to the west that are now submerged.

Many animals persisted, including bears, marmots and even caribou, but no evidence has been found that deer were present in these refugia.

The oldest deer bone in Southeast Alaska was found in Nautilus Cave on the west side of Heceta Island, dating at 8, years old. Deer likely moved north up the coast as the glaciers receded. Summer and winter home range areas vary fromacres and, for radio-collared deer on Admiralty Island, they average about acres. Migratory deer have larger annual home ranges than resident deer.

The average distance between summer and winter home ranges is five miles for migratory deer and half a mile for resident deer. Movement of deer between watersheds appears to be minimal during winter. During winter, the distribution of deer at various elevations is influenced by changing snow depth.

During extreme snow accumulation, many deer congregate in heavily timbered stands at lower elevations and some may bucks Anchorage dating move on to the beach. Deer research on Prince of Wales Island provides a general idea of how much habitat a Sitka black-tailed deer needs, and what deer densities are in good years in good habitat.

That work indicates 20 to 25 deer per square mile. Deer have inhabited northern Southeast Alaska since their migration from southern refugia following the Pleistocene epoch. Deep snow keeps the of deer on the mainland lower than that on adjacent islands. A population estimate suggests aboutdeer in Southeast Alaska Merriam The Southeast Alaska region wide annual average harvest in recent decades has been about 12, deer.

Deer populations tend to fluctuate seasonally, primarily in response to winter weather and wolf and bear predation. Clearcut logging has and will continue to further reduce deer carrying capacity in some areas. In some areas illegal hunting is also a factor.

To determine trends in deer populations in many parts of Alaska, biologists conduct pellet group surveys. Biologists and technicians walk a transect line about a mile long, stretching from the beach to the subalpine, looking for deer pellets or droppings in a meter-wide line.

Deer defecate with great regularity, 12 times per day on average per deer. The same areas are surveyed, so trends can be determined. Biologists consider anecdotal evidence as well as the pellet surveys when estimating deer populations trends.

Reports from hunters, harvest data, deer harvest reports which included effort even if no deer are harvestedand general sightings along highways also contribute to the picture. In some years, aerial surveys and mortality surveys have been conducted. There was, however, little natural movement from Long Island to Kodiak, so innine deer were captured in the Rocky Pass area near Petersburg and released on Kodiak. Deer populations are prone to dramatic population swings, largely attributable to severe winter weather.

The and winters had exceptional high snowfall persisting on the ground late in the spring in Southeast Alaska, and evidence indicates population declines of varying severity, depending on the area. Of more concern, habitat capability and deer s are expected to decline in some areas as large tracts of ly logged areas reach the closed canopy stem exclusion stage and become extremely poor deer habitat. Population models predict declines in deer carrying capacity in the Ketchikan area of 50—60 percent by the end of the logging rotation in Prince of Wales Island has several issues: POW likely has the highest level of illegal or unreported harvests, estimated to be equal to the reported harvest due to extensive and increasing road system, lack of law enforcement personnel and high unemployment.

Worst things about living in alaska

During the next five to 10 years large tracts of ly logged areas will reach the closed canopy stem exclusion stage; large tracts of land will be converted to extremely poor deer habitat, and consequently, habitat capability and deer s are expected to decline.
