“The White-tailed Deer varies greatly in size. Grayish in winter, reddish brown in summer. Mostly active at twilight or night where hunted; otherwise seen during the day. Raises the underside “white flag” of its tail when alarmed. Antlers of male feature one main beam with multiple vertical points. W 50-300 lbs. Height 32-40″ (no shoulder)”.

The above is an excerpt from “Land Mammals of the Southeast”, a folding, waterproof guide.
