Infected wildlife cannot be selectively harvested for most diseases, complicating disease control. Targeting harvests by sex improves efficiency because disease transmission and prevalence usually vary by sex. We present a bioeconomic model of optimal deer and disease management that incorporates a two-sex wildlife model and sex-specific disease transmission and prevalence.
