Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Taken from Chapter 8: The white-tailed deer Bony branches The male deer, or buck, begins to grow antlers when he is about two years old. The size of the antlers and the number of branches, or points, they have depend on how good the deer's diet has been. The antlers of a five-year-old buck are the most highly developed. Before and after this bucks have smaller antlers with fewer points. Antlers grow from May to August. They are shed for the winter. You might think that these sharp, bony antlers are used for protection. In actual fact, they are not much of a defense at all. Antlers can become entangled in the antlers of other deer or in nearby trees. The deer can then be easily attacked by a predator. The main reason deer use their antlers is to compete for a female during mating season. Bucks bring their antlers together and push each other back and forth. The male that does the most pushing gets the chance to mate with the chosen female.
