Do deers show up in the summer?
Yes Additional info: The front bumper of my car says YES! The reason that deer are not seen on roads as much during the summer as they are during the winter is that there is much more food available to deer during the summer and they do not have to forage too far for food. During the winter when there isn't as much food available the deer take more chances and are found crossing more roads in search of food.

Do deers hibernate?
Deer species do not hibernate in any way. White-tailed deer 'yard up' which means they avoid deep snow by finding groves of evergreens such as hemlock trees that can hold up some of the snow, allowing them to walk better underneath. The deer don't eat very nutritiously during this lean peroid, but they do eat what browse is available, and add bark and othe lower nutrition foods to their diet. Mostly they rely on fat stores and move less. Often they lie in the sun on winter days on edges of woods to warm up, saving energy.
