How does a deer mate?
June 16, 2012 3:34AM
The male mounts on top of the female, and puts his penis inside the females vagina, and the male has a sack behind his penis, which produces a sperm, that goes inside the female so they can reproduce.

Why do female deer not have horns?
Male deer have antlers and use them to fight for females. The females simply mate with the winners of the fights. Females do not need to fight to mate with the winner. A male deer can mate with many females. The female gets to mate with the strongest and healthiest male without doing anything. Also, it takes a lot of energy to produce antlers. The female uses her energy to produce her calf.
Asked in Animal Life, Deer
Will an axis deer and a white tail deer mate?
They might. However, the breeding season for Axis (Chittal) deer and White-tail deer are opposite, with Axis deer rutting from May to August and White-tail from October to December. Though a rutting Axis deer may try to mate with a not-in-season white-tail doe, or vice versa, the chance of producing offspring may be nil. Axis deer are actually more closely related to the American Elk than White-tailed Deer, and offspring, though not recorded, may not be genetically viable.
