White-Tailed Deer

White-Tailed Deer

Size and Weight

The white-tail (Odocoileus virginianus), also known as the Virginia deer, is the smallest of all North American deer species. Full-grow adults are typically 45-105 inches in length and weight 100-300 pounds. Moose (Alces alces), on the other hand, frequently exceed over 1,400 pounds when full grown.

Like all deer species, region of plays a key role in the size of a white-tailed deer. White-tailed deer in the southern stated are smaller, with an average weigh of just 80-110 pounds in the Florida Keys. However, white-tailed deer in the northern states typically weigh around 200-300 pounds. There are a couple of reasons for this phenomenon, one of which is the simple fact that food is more plentiful up north. Another reason why white-tailed deer are larger in the north is because they need more fat reserves to survive the cold winter months.

If a white-tailed deer is stressed -- whether from predators, lack of food or physical injury -- they will experience slower growth than 'healthy' deer.

White-Tail In Habitat

White-Tail In Habitat

Habitat

White-tails are found throughout most of the U.S. (with the exception of Alaska, Hawaii and pocket areas in the west), Canada, Central America and parts of South America. Most stay within a one-mile radius unless food and/or water becomes scarce, they are spooked a predator, or they are searching for a mate.

They prefer a wooded habitat, as this offers a combination of food, water, and protection against bobcats, mountain lions, coyotes, wolves, wild hogs and other predators. However, it's not uncommon to find them in open prairies and sage communities as well. With such a wide regional distribution, white-tails have adapted to a variety of habitats.

The white-tail's habitat oftentimes overlaps with the habit of humans. If you are currently a U.S. resident, chances are you've seen one of the majestic deer roaming in a residential area, along side a road, or even in your backyard. Because of their frequent 'shared' habitat, both white-tails and humans are placed in danger. White-tails are responsible for more human deaths in the U.S. than any other animal due to the tens of thousands of automobile accidents they create.

Diet and Nutrition

Like most deer species, the white-tail is an herbivore, feasting only on plants and plant-based matter. They typically go out during the early dawn and dusk hours to forage. The white-tail's diet varies depending on regional habitat and season, but some of their most commonly eaten foods include:

  • Legumes
  • Leaves
  • Grass
  • Acorns
  • Wheat
  • Corn.
  • Nuts
  • Twigs
  • Lichens
  • Mushrooms

Note: Due to their multi-chambered stomach, white-tails are capable of eating and digesting herbs that are toxic to humans, such as poison ivy and fungi. 

Spooked White-Tailed Doe

Spooked White-Tailed Doe

Physical Description

The white-tail lives up to its namesake with a distinct snow-white colored rear-end and tail underside. Normally, their tail remains pointed downwards where the white-colored fur is hidden from sight. When spooked, however, they raise their tail upwards to reveal their white fur, which serves as a warning sign to other deer in the area. This same white fur is also found on their belly, throat and around the nose.

In terms of appearance, most white-tails possess a deep red/brown-colored coat during the spring and summer months. As the year progresses deeper into fall and winter, their coat begins to turn into a more grayish color.

Antlers

Male white-tails (bucks) shed their antlers each year for the purpose of growing larger ones before the mating season. It's a common assumption that antler size is a direct relation to age. While age does in fact play a role in a white-tailed buck's antlers, genetics and nutrition are equally as influential.

Note: about 1 in 10,000 females develop antlers as a result of a rare genetic abnormality.

By the age of 1.5 years, a buck's antler growth is roughly 50% complete. Their antlers gradually become larger and more complexes with each passing year, until they reach 100% development at the age of 6 years. Bucks that grow only two antler tines without any additional branching are known as "spikes."

Bucks' antlers are primarily used for sparring with one another during the rut. When two bucks are around a doe in a heat, they will battle in hopes on winning courtship rights.  These spars can be quite intense, resulting in broken bones, lacerations and other serious injury. Bucks may also use their antlers to ward off predators when flight is not an option.

Breeding

The white-tail's breeding season (rut) occurs in the months of October and November. Females typically reach sexual maturity between the ages of 1-2 years, at which point they are ready to mate. If a doe successfully mates with a buck during this short period of time, she will give birth to 1-3 spotted fawns in the following spring (usually May-June).

When does enter the rut, bucks in the area become more active and aggressive. If two or more bucks are close a doe in heat, they'll spar by ramming each other with their antlers. This behavior continues until all but one buck backs down.

Fast Facts

  • Minnesota-native hunter Carl J. Lenander, Jr. harvested a white-tailed deer in 1926 that weighed over 400 pounds after it was field-dressed. Experts believe this deer may have weighed 510 points before it was dressed.
  • Due to a rare genetic disorder, roughly 1 in 10,000 females grow antlers.
  • White-tailed deer are fast runners, capable of reaching speeds up to 40 mph.
  • Although they may not look like it, white-tailed deer are capable of swimming up to 13 mph.
  • White-tailed deer have a two-color vision focused on blue and yellow, making hunters nearly invisible when wearing bright orange safety vests.
  • White-tailed deer have a multi-chambered digestive system (ruminant) with four individual stomachs.
  • Over-hunting combined with a lack of regulation led to a white-tailed deer population of just 300,000 in the 1930s.
  • Today, the population of white-tailed deer in the U.S. tops 30 million thanks to harvesting regulations and laws.
  • Contrary to what some people believe, a white-tailed deer's antlers are fully developed by the age of 6.
  • White-tails can jump as high as 10 feet.
  • Females (does) give typically give birth to 1-3 baby white-tailed deer (fawns).

Video of a White-Tail Snorting

Check out this video a white-tail buck snorting and huffing. Bucks frequently do this to scare off predators or other bucks in the area. Does produce a slightly different, high-pitched squeal when searching for their their fawns. This is one of the few videos I've found that actually shows a wild white-tail communicating.
