About The Whitetail Deer
If you live in the continental United States, I'll bet you've seen a whitetail deer (Odocoileus virginianus) at some point in your life before. They are the most common species of deer here and found throughout much of the United States (except Hawaii, Alaska, Nevada, Utah, and California), Canada, Central America, and even parts of South America. Whitetail deer have also been successfully introduced into other regions including parts of Europe and even New Zealand where they are now thriving with healthy population numbers.
Whitetail deer, also known as the Virginia deer, get their name from their snow-white colored tail and rear end. When startled or threatened, they will raise their bright white tail as an alarm signal to alert other deer as they run away. The easiest way to identify them is to look for their distinct white tail.
Whitetail Antler Information
As you may already know, male whitetail deer (bucks) shed and grow their antlers once per year. During the mating season (rut), they will battle other bucks by ramming into each other antlers first. This is a sign of strength and done to attract female whitetails in hopes that they will mate with them. After the rut is over and their testosterone levels have dropped, they will shed their antlers and begin growing new ones with a soft velvet covering over them. Typically, each time a whitetail buck sheds their antlers, larger ones will grow back.
Whitetail bucks also use their antlers to spar with one another over territory disputes. If a buck enters a tract of land where another buck has their territory marked, there's a good chance the two will fight to for claiming rights. These battles sparring matches are typically less intense than battles during the mating season, but they can still result in some pretty serious cuts and bruises. When one of the bucks begins to tire, he will walk away and move on to a new piece of land.
With habitats ranging from the frozen tundras of Canada to the tropic climates of South America, the whitetail is notorious for its ability to adapt to their surrounding environment. Of course a great deal of their adaptability is due to the fact that there are over 3 dozen subspecies, many of which have possesses unique characteristics and traits tailored toward their native habitat.
In North America, whitetails typically tend to stay in the woodland forests during the winter months and go to plains and fields during the summer. Unlike their their counterpart the black-tailed deer, whitetails prefer the thick wooded forests where have more cover from natural predators. Once they find a nice forested area with plenty of food and a nearby water source, they will stay usually stay within a one-mile radius unless threatened by predators, weather or lack of resources (food and water).
Physical Characteristics of Whitetail
Their most prominent characteristic is of course their white tail, which they use as an alarm. Like the mule deer, whitetail deer will usually have a tan to light brown coat with a white underbelly and backside. Their coats will often change color tone as the season changes, becoming more dark as the months draw further into the year.
The size of a whitetail will vary depending on their location and food scarcity. Typically, the farther north from the equator they are found, the larger the deer will be. This may be somewhat confusing since food is usually more scarce, but whitetails eat more so they can sustain their health and weight throughout the cold winter months. Once spring rolls around, they tend to lose some of their weight and drop back to around 150-250 pounds. They can range in weight from 120 to 330 lbs and have a shoulder height of 2.5 to 4 feet tall. Although, some of the largest specimens ever recorded have tipped the scaled at 400+ pounds. These record-setting whitetails were harvested far north up in the Ontario, Canada regions.
What Do Whitetail Eat?
Whitetail are herbivores, meaning they only eat plants and vegetation with no meat in their diet. Since they inhabit many different types of environments and a range of climates, their diet will often change to what's around them at the time. If a whitetail runs out of readily-available food in their surrounding habitat, they will venture out in search of more sustainability.
Some of the common food whitetail feed on include acorns, grass, fruit, corn, orchards, leaves, forbs, twigs, cacti and mushrooms. Whitetail are also known to venture into fields owned by farmers to feed on their crops. In fact, deer cause millions of dollars in crop damage every year and are considered the number one nuisance by many farmers. Accompanied with the thousands of auto accidents caused by deer, it's apparent why hunting is such a necessary sport.
Like all other species of deer, whitetails are ruminants, meaning they have a multi-chambered stomach. This allows them to digest rough things that our sensitive stomachs otherwise wouldn't be able to handle. For instance, wildlife watchers have observed whitetails eating poison ivy without any ill side effects. Each chamber of their stomach slowly breaks down the poison ivy so it doesn't pose any threat to them. Certain mushrooms that are poisonous to humans can also be eaten by whitetails.

Video of Whitetail Buck With Nice Antlers
Here's a video of a beautiful whitetail buck that comes right up to the person recording the video and eats out of his hand! The buck actually looks relatively small, but the rack of antlers he's sporting is quite impressive. As you can see, not all bucks are standoffish. This little guy approaches the videographer without thinking twice, but it's probably due to the fact that he's being fed.
