White Tails Weathering the Winter

Even though deer sightings may be down, doesn't mean they are struggling through this harsh winter. 

Jean Goad, Grand Rapids DNR Public Information Officer tells KLKS News, the severity index is growing.  She says one point is added for every day below zero, and every day with 15 inches or more of snow on the ground.  The deer are yarding-up and living off tree tops and stored fat, and are doing well for now.

Goad says the situation could change in a month or so, if the harsh conditions don't break.
