This is a study on survival rates and body masses of roe deer on the island of Storfosna in Central Norway. The study includes a condition of halting hunting for a certain time period which results in significant increase in the population and survival rate of the deer population in the region. This study can be used to prove the effects that no hunting will have on the deer population and how its increase will actually end up harming the environment than doing any good.

This paper will help in highlighting the reasons for ineffective deer management and also provide reasons as to why restrictions on hunting lead to more damage than good.
