Hillside - White tailed deer, Ottawa, Ontario

The white-tailed deer is the most common of all of North America’s large mammals. It is also the most widely distributed. A deer's home range is usually less the a square mile. Deer collect in family groups of a mother and her fawns. When a doe has no fawns, she is usually solitary. Male bucks may live in groups consisting of three or four individuals, except in mating season, when they are solitary. White-tailed deer mate in November and the female has one to three fawns after about six months after mating.
