A new-born antelope kid freezes as Rod Canutt and Jim Yoakum approach it on Drake Flat near Plush, Ore., and Canutt calms the youngster before taking it to their cabin. Both men are graduate students at Oregon State College and are living on the barren flats while working toward a master's degree in wildlife management. Their major study is on the survival of antelope, but they have acquired in addition to 10 kids a baby porcupine and several marmots. All must be bottle-fed, the porcupine (above) is a do-it-yourself devotee, and when the men aren't roaming the fiats, they spend hours milking a pair of nanny goats and tenderly administering to juvenile wildlife needs. Above, right, two marmots get their share of "mother love" and milk.
