At the Ranch – Whitetail: Late Season Behavior

Understanding Late Season Behavior

After the rut, deer change how they act.

Snowfall and colder temperatures trigger them to prepare for winter.

Deer will bed much of the day, and will travel long distances for the best food sources, such as corn, wheat or standing beans.

When temperatures are colder than average, deer will move to food earlier in the day. They will often be in larger groups than in the fall.

Survival is the most important thing during the winter.
