White-tailed deer are tan or brown in the summer, grayish brown in winter, and somewhat invisible around deer season. Average bucks weigh 100 to 200 pounds, and does weigh 80 to 160 pounds.
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.
