    Since MDC has embarked on a program to collar and track deer in 2 regions, is there a plan on presenting, or allowing access to, these data in real time to the public?

    As a start, anything similar to the bear tracking website

    Thanks

    No way, no how will they show where the deer are at in real time data. I recently mentioned the idea of doing some sort of real time habitat selection data availability and that has a little more potential. I don't think it will be real time but it would be nice to be able to show what habitat is being used compared to what is available. Next time I'm in Columbia I'm supposed to stop by and talk it over with the project leader but I generally avoid the large office locations so I'm not sure when it will happen.
