  • Did you know that the White-tailed Deer can communicate with 13 different sounds?
  • The White-tailed deer lives in fields, in clearings or in regrowth areas. In winter, when the snow is deep, they shelter under conifer trees that also supply them with food.
  • Deers are vegetarians. Food is abundant in summer. In winter, they feed on small branches, lichen and if there is a little snow, they will dig to find plants to eat.
  • Humans, coyotes, dogs, lynx and bears are among their predators.
  • The best time for deer sightings is early morning, evening and early night.
  • Did you know that fawns walk only minutes after birth?
  • You must be 16 yr-old to get a deer hunting licence in New Brunswick. Consult the Provincial Hunting Guide for more information.
  • In 2009, 49,629 New-Brunswick residents had hunting licences and killed 5,060 deers, 2,720 fewer than the 2008 harvest of 7,780 deers. The fall of 2009 was the warmest deer-hunting season in over two decades.

Biodiversity goals in this province include the conservation of genetics, species and ecosystem diversity of New Brunswick as well as the sustainable use and development of our biological resources. The White-tailed deer is an integral part of the ecosystem of this province.
