Can you mange genetics of wild deer though herd manipulation — killing specific deer — to achieve bigger bucks? That's a question a lot of hunters and land managers ask and discuss.
Can culling bucks with a spike on one side "get them out of the gene pool" or is this just one of deer hunting's long-held and untrue myths?
White-tailed deer in northern climes must deal with winter almost six months of the year including the brutal January conditions. How do they do it?
Research shows that hormones from a doe's reproductive tract and associated vaginal secretions during the time of estrus are primary sexual attractants.
Bucks and does of all ages are readily attracted to man-made signposts, but what else can these fake rubs tell hunters about whitetail behavior?
A recent scientific study showed that some white-tailed deer are genetically resistant to chronic wasting disease, which is found in 22 states.
Examining your deer from head to hoof can give you insights on the herd and may help you understand more about them and your management strategy.
Two giant bucks fight to the death in a startling video that shows the cycle of life.
Different species, even closely related ones, are normally kept from crossbreeding by geographical isolation but whitetail and mule deer are unique.
White-tailed deer populations are on the decline nationwide. Although the reasons vary regionally, some experts suggest diseases such as chronic wasting disease (CWD) are a contributing factor — at least in specific areas.
