White-tailed Deer:

History and Population Research

By: Kevin Fussell

general information
General Information
  • Odocoileus Virginianus
  • Found all across the U.S.
  • Lives throughout all of

Florida

  • Known for it’s long tail
  • Buck (male) - antlered
  • Doe (female) - antlerless
slide3

General Information (cont’d)

  • Buck’s can get up to six feet long

and three to four feet tall

  • Weight ranges from 100 to

over 300 lbs.

  • One of most popular big-game animals
  • Family to black-tailed and mule deer
slide4

Anatomy

  • Ruminant (cud-chewing) animals
  • Four-chambered stomachs
  • Buck’s antlers are composed of bone
  • 1st set of antlers by 18 months
  • New set each year
slide5

Anatomy (cont’d)

  • Vision is best at night
  • See at a low resolution during daylight
  • Deer have excellent hearing
  • Life expectancy is 15 to 20 years
  • Two purposes of coat
habitat
Habitat
  • Mostly thought of as woodland species
  • Sometimes live in “edge” habitat
  • Home range of about one mile
  • Need cover to hide

Social Lives

  • Females exclude males after maturity
  • Buck’s and doe’s travel separate
  • Exception is during breeding season
  • Breeding season, or “rut,” is between

December and January

  • A Buck’s neck swells and he is

very active during rut

Social Lives (Cont’d)

  • Female gestation is 200 days (7 months)
  • One fawn is typical in Florida
  • Sometimes up to three are born
  • Fawns are able to walk within

a few hours after birth

  • In Florida, the doe

population is larger

than the buck pop.

Diet
  • Primarily Herbivores
  • Feeding habits vary from locations
  • “Preferred”, “Marginal”, and

“Starvation” foods

  • Spring and Summer

foods

  • Winter foods
