What Are Those Whitetail Deer Behaviors Telling You?

When you’re watching bucks interacting with other bucks in summer bachelor groups, can you figure out what they’re doing out in the field each evening?

How about how does act in summer, when they have fawns nearby, versus later in autumn or winter when their young fawns are older? What about when does with fawns get around bucks?

buckeatingMaybe you’ve seen game camera images of a deer, or many deer, coming to a mineral lick or bait pile you’re using for population surveys. What do their actions in front of the camera tell you?

As hunters we’re always learning, watching and trying to figure out whitetail behavior. Years of research, boosted probably in the last three decades most greatly due to cameras and more intense interest in white-tailed deer, has continued to fuel our desire for knowledge to assist with deer and habitat management, recreation and hunting.

Dan Schmidt, editor of Deer & Deer Hunting, will lend insight into some of those whitetail habits today on Deer Talk Now.
