At the Ranch – Whitetail: Importance of Water in Deer Management
A deer’s need for water will actually fluctuate throughout the year. Water helps control some basic, year-round things for deer such as daily metabolic function, waste excretion, and transporting nutrients and minerals throughout the body. A constant water source will also make those deer stick around, not having to wonder on to your neighbors property for a drink. Make sure to make accessible water part of your deer management plan this season.
