Abstract. Estimates of utilization of the Cedar Creek Natural History Area by the white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus borealis) during the winter of 1963 and 1964 were made using the deer-drive method. The 1964 estimate is considered the more realistic index of winter utilization by deer of the area because of increased efficiency of the drive, weather conditions favoring deer-drive technics, and agreement with results of pellet-count studies made independently of the area.
