Density of red deer Cervus elaphus Linnaeus, 1758 had been estimated on the area of the Słowiński National Park (Poland, at Baltic Sea shore) from 1990 untli 1993. Four research technoques were used: (1) spring observations in open areas adjacent to forest tracts, (2) night observations in spot-lights, (3) sample drives, and (4) winter tracking in snow. It was found that the first two underestimate actual deer numbers. Density based on driving census amounts to ca 12 ind/km2 of forests and reeds.This high density was confirmed by results of winer tracking.
