Diet varies according to habitat and season, but commonly they eat green plants in the summer, corn, acorns and other nuts in the fall, and the buds and twigs of woody plants in the winter. Given enough food, water and shelter their population grows very quickly. Home range is usually less than a square mile. (The Rut Timetable in Texas) This is the best time to see the big ones.
