Buck  (White-tailed Deer)

One of the most abundant large mammals in North America, the white-tailed deer ranges over much of the continent.  Male deer are called Bucks and are recognizable by their antlers which grow every year.  The antlers are made of bone and grow during the spring and are shed every winter.  The antlers can tell much about the health of the animal.  The abundance of tines or points means a healthy Buck.  White-tails may live to be from 6 to 14 years of age and can weigh up to 300 pounds.  Being fast and agile they can run at speeds up to 30 miles per hour and can leap up to 10 feet.  The white tail refers to the underside of the deer’s tail which they flash to warn of danger.  The deer’s senses are very acute, especially hearing and vision.  A deer can easily detect contrasts and edges in twilight.  People who have deer as a totem may find their ability to see subtle movements increase and to hear what is not being said.
