White-tailed deer can be found throughout Florida from the panhandle to the keys. They prefer habitats with young, low-growing vegetation and edge, where the intersection of two different habitats allows deer to easily feed and avoid predators.


Breeding season is from September to March. About 200 days later, a litter of 1-3 fawns is born. The young begin accompanying the mother to feed at 3-4 weeks but are not weaned for another 2-3 months and will remain with her until they are 6-18 months old.


Deer are considered a keystone species. This means that they directly impact the lives of other plants and animals. At the correct population, white-tailed deer increase biodiversity and encourage new plant growth. Their feces add to the soil encouraging plants to grow and thrive.
