At the Ranch – Whitetail: Water Importance
Water is a crucial part of a whitetail deer’s life.
Deer need to drink several times a day, and on average a deer will consume 3-5 quarts of water per day. The hotter the temperature, the more water a deer needs.
Deer like to visit a water source on their way to food in the evening, and bucks will often bed near a primary water source. Water sources can be as small as a puddle.
Deer can also consume water through moisture in their food.
