The “white-tail” refers to the underside of the deer’s tail, which it displays and wags when it senses danger. They spend the summer grazing in the meadows and move into the forests during the winter to protect themselves from the elements. Their coats fade from reddish brown in the summer to grayish brown in the winter. They use their speed to outrun their predators, they can sprint up to 30 mph, and they can leap as high as 10 ft and as far as 30 ft in a single bound. They give birth to 1-3 young at a time, usually in May and June.
