Game animal specialist Peep Männil sent the video of the collaring of the roe buck that was done in connection with the telemetric studies of the Estonian  Environment Agency. In it the size of the territories of roe deer and their movement patterns were observed in different seasons.  In 2012 four roe deer were collared; one of them is the buck that can also be seen in the video. The little buck was momentarily frightened – what is happening? but all went well and for some time the researchers could follow the movements of the roe deer via GPS. Peep Männil will write in more detail about the analysis of the data in the year of the roe deer.
