He is a regular contributor to the North American Whitetail magazine and that magazine's TV show, which also airs on Sportsman Channel. Dr. Kroll has written many books and has conducted some of the most groundbreaking research studies in the deer world. In addition to his public works, he is also a professor of forest wildlife and director of the Institute for White-tailed Deer Management and Research at Stephen F.
