Monty and Craig give to Bur Oak to double their impact on local conservation efforts.
If you or I had the assignment to design an animal well-adapted to the winter rigors of central Canada and north to the Arctic tundra, what would the critter look like?
Iowa is in a good location regarding the effects of winter on its deer population. Further north, above the Canadian border, winters are sufficiently long and severe to occasionally kill part of the herd.
Northern states tend to have most of their hunting seasons in autumn. One of the reasons is that winter mortality is greater than in other seasons, especially due to starvation and freezing.
