Deer Yards

January 14, 2013

I discovered that all these “nests” make up a deer yard. White-tailed Deer stay in family groups during the year and gather into herds in the winter. It is amazing that I don’t see a stampede racing away as we approach.

Did you know a large buck can weigh up to 450 pounds with a shoulder height of 4 feet? But don’t forget to add the neck, head and antlers on before you decide you would like to meet one personally. Females, the does, only get to 250 pounds and 3 feet at the shoulders.

Luckily in New England White-tails are happy to graze on conifer needles. My dog, Cabot, was grazing on conifer needles on a hike the other day as Emma rolled happily in the snow and I stopped to take yet more photos. I wonder what nutrients he gained from his snack. Dogs are definitely omnivores. What vegetables or fruit does your dog like?
