exterminated by market
hunting in much of the United States -- especially
the Midwest and Northeast – the whitetail deer
population by the 1970s across North America has
been steadily growing. Following extensive efforts
to protect whitetails and restock herds from the
1940s forward, whitetails numbers in their natural
range are estimated today as high as 25 million
no surprise, then, that whitetails --
-- are found just about anywhere.
It has become the most plentiful game animal in
eastern North America and is seen as a pest in
many areas -- eating garden plants and ornamental
shrubs and trees, and contributing to tens of
thousands of car accidents. Thinning the deer
population is among the cures for these problems
and is best done by hunting both does and bucks.
As a result, hunting
seasons for whitetails of both sexes now are
scheduled in all states and Canadian provinces
where the animals are found.
Though not the primary cause of Lyme disease,
white-tailed deer are the host for deer ticks,
which spread Lyme disease to humans who are bitten
by “carrier” ticks.)
Whitetails prefer to live around the edge
of forestlands – at transition points to open
areas – and, frequently, in farming country.
However, increased urbanization of land has
created ideal habitat for deer where yards meet
forested land – both deciduous and conifer forests
– as well as grasslands and even deserts where
water sources are found within 10 miles. Land
clearing also has reduced the number of natural
predators of not only whitetails but of their
North American cousins, too – mule deer and
black-tailed deer. All three species often
enter human inhabited areas and feast on vegetable
gardens, flowerbeds, ornamental shrubs and trees
and a variety of grasses. Deer have also been seen
taking drinks from artificial water supplies.
White-tailed deer tend to remain separated by sex
and will only come together for short periods of
time during the “rut” -- or breeding season --
which occurs between November and January,
depending upon the location. During this period,
bucks spar for breeding and domain rights. One to
three fawns are born to does usually in May or
June and remain with does through the following
winter. In spring, young bucks begin the rites of
maturity by leaving the does, growing their first
set of antlers – frequently little more than
“spikes” several inches long – and sparing to
claim domain rights. Does continue to herd
together through summertime.
Life span in the wild is about 10 years.
deer are extremely cautious animals with keen
senses of smell and hearing.
Both bucks and does tend to come out at night to
feed or migrate and usually remain awake until
dawn. When they do sleep, it is usually in areas
of dense cover and only for short periods of time.
When nervous, the white-tailed deer snorts through
its nose and stamps its hooves, an action that
alerts other nearby deer to danger. If alarmed,
the deer raises -- or "flags" -- its tail to
display a large, bright flash of white that sends
a danger signal to other deer and helps a fawn
follow its mother in flight.
They are always alert to the sense of danger, but
they can grow at ease with people, pets,
automobiles and other machinery that appear to
pose no threat, although they typically bolt when
approached. When they run from confrontation,
whitetails rarely dash farther than the nearest
White-tailed deer are browsers and grazers.
Leaves, grass, bark, acorns, shrubs, fruits, nuts,
berries, lichens, fungi and other plant material
support whitetail growth to as much as 400 pounds
for bucks and 200 pounds for does, but these are
the biggest of the sexes. The largest individuals
are usually found where winter weather is
harshest. On average, a single deer consumes 5 to
10 pounds of food a day, primarily
what is available in their habitat. Where yards
meet woodlands, deer will readily adapt their
feeding routines to include the vegetable gardens,
ornamental shrubs and trees of homeowners and
it comes to accessing urban food-scapes,
whitetails are an amazingly efficient -- and
clever -- animal. Azaleas, rhododendrons, roses
and hostas are among their favorites, but it often
seems there’s no end to what they will eat. The
damage done to yard plants by a lone deer can be
substantial. Several deer can lay a 2-acre
landscape to waste. Their remarkable jumping
ability allows them to clear fences as much as 9
feet high. They learn the domain and attitude of
yard dogs, and some have even displayed an
understanding of how far a tethered dog can range.
And they communicate their learning to their
brethren, especially fawns and yearlings.
a result, deer deterrents range wide across the
horizon of the imagination. Deer are mostly color
blind so any bright colors will also not act as a
deterrent. Thus, numerous offensive products –
both professionally and personally cooked up to
protect ornamental shrubs, trees, flowerbeds and
vegetable gardens – are made to attack their
taste buds and their noses. Many temporarily turn
deer away, but their cleverness eventually results
in failed remedies.
deer must be instilled with the fear of physical
harm, which almost always naturally occurs with
predators. Indeed, it is only the fear of death
that effectively breaks their behavior, whether
it’s in a yard or in the woods. To turn deer away
from the foods they want, they must sense an
assault upon their security. This is best done by
taking advantage of their remarkable sense of
smell for locating food and survival. Their nose
will lead them to return over and over again to
areas where food is tasty, abundant and safe to
forage. Their nose will also alert deer to nearby
danger. Disrupt their sense of security and you’ve
achieved the primary factor for turning deer away
from your valuable plants, gardens, shrubs and
trees. Deer have good memories and learn from each
other. When one deer is afraid to return to an
area, other deer – including fawns – also will be
reluctant to enter the area.
