A female deer (Odocoileus virginianus), which had been confined all six years of her life, was immobilized with Sernylan, fitted with a collar containing a radio transmitter, and released on a study area in west-central Illinois on March 8, 1963. Her movements and daily activity were monitored, using portable radio tracking equipment, until December, 1963. Early movements and activity were thought to be related to previous confinement, while later movements and activity were considered to be more normal.
