The workshop will include a panel discussion on the role of predator versus habitat mechanisms on cervid population dynamics, and candid discussions of differing viewpoints about various factors influencing cervid populations. A general session about deer and elk research and management will be followed by papers and panels discussing limiting factors on elk and deer populations, including predator and ungulate management.

An exhibitor area will be adjacent to the conference hall.
