MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The state DNR is looking for volunteers to help with an ongoing deer mortality study.

Officials are in the 3rd year of a five-year study which looks into the causes of natural deer deaths.

Volunteers have been involved in various phases of the work. In 2013, the DNR is looking for folks willing to spend a day with biologists checking traps, getting blood samples, giving ultrasound examinations to antlerless deer, and fitting animals with ear tags and radio collars so they can be monitored.

The work will take place from January through March at Shiocton and Winter.

More information is at the DNR’s Web site, accessible at Wisconsin.Gov.
