The White Tailed Deer


The White Tailed Deer is a beautiful animal and a great success story. When my father was a boy during the great depression, White tailed were actually very hard to find in the forest because of unregulated hunting. Thanks to successful conservation efforts, we can now admire this amazing animal in many areas around the United States (except the Southwest) if we are watching for them at dusk and dawn.  Enjoy the wonder of the natural world!

  • Deer can jump over 8 feet high!
