Deer in the DeSoto National Wildlife Refuge

Shortly after dawn this buck and doe were spotted in the DeSoto National Wildlife Refuge. Created in 1958, the refuge is located the migratory bird corridor of the Missouri River floodplain and provides essential habitat for resident, migratory, and endangered species. High quality floodplain forest, grassland, wetland, sandbar, and river habitats support diverse and productive populations of migratory waterfowl, shorebirds and semi-tropical birds, as well as rare, threatened, and endangered species including the pallid sturgeon, piping plover and least tern.
