Life & Times of the Whitetail


The Life & Times of the Whitetail and Life and Times of the Whitetail Biologist were monthly features that appeared in Pennsylvania Game News magazine. Written by agency white-tailed deer biologist Jeannine Fleegle, these features explore the world of deer and the work biologists do from an incredibly unique and very casual perspective, with a touch of humor and a conciseness that any reader appreciates. So get comfortable and delve into the whitetail world. You won't be disappointed.
