A bundled-up whitetail tag team fits a radio collar and ear tag on a sedated deer for a study conducted by Nancy Mathews, associate professor in the Gaylord Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies. The face of the deer is covered to calm it. The team includes UW-Madison wildlife ecology students and veterinarians. Mathews is researching how deer use the landscape in the south central region of Wisconsin where chronic wasting disease has gained a toehold.
