Default Do all deer herd?

In Canada and the northern states that have winter(snow) the deer will herd for the duration of the winter.I was wondering if this happens where there is no snow?Do the deer herd in Florida or Texas?....

if you mean bunch up into herds of many. not in Fla. you may see three or four in a bunch.I have saw five maybe three times in my hunting lifetime.most of the time it is maybe two does and there fawns.
I have saw TV shows in Fla. where they have food plots and you may see two or three bunches of three to five.


I am not a hunter I am a whitetail population reduction specialest

remember keep your back to the sun, your knife sharp, and your powder dry.

We do in my part of Illinois. I don't see 20-30 or more deer together until about January. I have been on late season(January) deer drives and saw 45 deer running together out of a small area. Usually I see a few and they are scattered during the season.

I usually see them bunch up in herds around here in Kansas. Last year, counted over 100 in one field.

In Texas, after the rut all the deer spread out. You will see a couple of doe together and maybe a young buck or two.

Geez, three or four deer in a "herd". Gosh, here in Pennsylvania they REALLY herd up. A couple weeks ago there were 36 deer in a field feeding by my house. About 10 were bucks. The biggest herd I ever saw was about 3 years ago. I went spotting before a really hard ice storm hit. I saw about 56 deer in a single field. There were about 16 bucks in the group. While rifle hunting the biggest herd I ever saw was probablly close to 20 and while archery I saw about 15 doe and 2 bucks.

Good Luck This Season: Buck Magnet
P.S. Only Chuck Adams can sit at home and see deer so get into the woods. =;^)
