The fawns are well camouflaged and out of sight of potential predators. Fawns withhold their faeces and urine until the mother returns when she then ingests whatever the fawn emits in order to avoid detection by predators..
White-tailed deer are active throughout the day and night but are most active at dusk and dawn. White-tailed deer may inhabit the same range throughout the year or migrate to separate summer-fall and winter ranges.
