What are adaptations of the white tailed deer?

White-tailed deer have long legs to get through the tall grass. Their legs are long and powerful to enable them to run fast to escape from danger, and to make long jumps. They also have tough tongues to eat the pointy cacti. They have antlers so the males can fight each other during the breeding season, and white tails to signal to their flock when they are in danger. The females do not have antlers, but they do have white tails, and the fawns have a spotted coat when they are born so that they are harder to spot. Their fur colour helps them to camouflage so their predators cannot see them as easily. They have good sensitivity of hearing, and make an alarm call to escape from predators.

grass

Deer are herbivores. They eat a large variety of plants-nuts-mushrooms and fungus. Deer will eat virtually anything growing in a garden as well as most flowering plants. They will eat treebark when winters are very harsh. They will crush pine cones to get the seeds. Deer love corn-wheat- rye as well as most "grasses". Deer will eat most fruits. Apples are a favorite. This varied diet helps the deer to survive in just about any region

Is the 1894FG 41 magnum adequate for whitetail deer?

Absolutely, if the shooter knows his weapon, and it's limitations. The .41 Mag in a rifle developes more than enough knockdown to take deer to 100 yds. easily, if the shooter is proficient with the gun, and knows shot placement. Some folks might hold to a little more distance, but I think the .41 Mag should be kept to not much more than 100 yds. I agree. The .41 magnum is on the list of approved cartridges for deer hunting published by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Since it is actually a pistol cartridge with a heavy, relatively slow moving bullet, the range limit of 100 yards is a good recommendation, I think.

Do all deer shed antlers?

Yes, all deer shed their antlers. Male deer grow and shed their antlers every year. Antlers are composed of true bone. Antler growth begins in late March or early April and the growing bone is covered by skin with numerous blood vessels (velvet). In late summer and early fall, testosterone levels increase. This hormone elevation results in the antlers hardening and the buck rubs off the drying velvet. When testosterone levels begin to drop, antlers start to shed beginning in mid January. Deer that are in the best physical condition will lose their antlers later in the winter.

The entire shedding process takes a mere two to three weeks to complete, and the re-growth phase takes place over the summer. The docile male deer that, with the exception of the male and the female reindeer, solely sports antlers, sheds them between January and April, after the autumn mating season draws to a close. He can do without antlers at this time, because his need for them in prior months, to attract and to impress females for his harem of mates, and to fight with his competitors for the females' affections, no longer exists.

However, female Caribou also have antlers, as the male Caribou do, but the female do not shed their antlers every year.

How often do deer shed antlers?

Deer shed their antlers annually for the regeneration, or re-growth, of new ones.

The entire shedding process takes two to three weeks to complete, and the re-growth phase takes place over the summer. The docile male deer that, with the exception of the male and the female reindeer, solely sports antlers, sheds them between January and April, after the autumn mating season draws to a close.

Did New York in the late 1800s have no white-tail deer and fewer trees than exist today?

This is true of many northeastern US states and is definitely true for southeastern NY. The 19th century was the peak of agriculture in the northeast. Farming was rapidly becoming more efficient in the midwest. Out on the plains the new farm machinery and techniques could be employed on a large scale. In the northeast, plots of land were smaller, hillier, and rockier. Farms were rarely more than a few acres.

You can see a vivid demonstration of this in the old stone walls of New York and New England. These used to mark the borders of cleared farmland. Now they're usually in forests. As the forests reclaimed the land, so did the creatures of the forest. In addition to increasing habitat for the deer, very few people hunt deer for food anymore.
