White-tailed deer

Odocoileus virginianus


Broad-leafed and mixed woods, edges of fields and water-sides. I've seen them eating the grasses in salt marshes near our house.


All winter 10 Wild turkeys dominated our yard. They disappeared just as suddenly as they arrived. While they were here they monopolized the grain I put out, so I took some out deep in our woods for the deer. Now crows, ground feeding birds and... hopefully deer might get a chance to eat - apparently the maine deer herd suffered greatly this winter from deep snow. This one looked like it was doing well so my efforts helped.
