 In order to get the population size of Tianshan red deer (Cervus elaphus songaricus) on Karawushen Mountainous in Xinjiang, three different methods including strip transect sampling method, pellet group counting method and non-damage of marking and recapture method were used from 2010 to 2012. Finally, we found that the population size of Tianshan red deer is 1.316~1.656 ind./km2 by strip transect sampling method, 1.422~2.844 ind./km2 by pellet group counting method, and 2.075~3.11 ind./km2 by non-damage of marking and recapture method, respectively, suggesting that it is hard to compare the population size using different methods.
