One of the most widely distributed mammals across the Americas, whitetail deer are among the few species aided by human activities. When large trees are cleared for agricultural expansion, for example, deciduous vegetation often starts to grow in, which is the whitetail’s favored habitat.
History: While you might not think it due to their enormous population today, at one point in the early 20th century, whitetail deer were so severely overhunted that they were nearly endangered. In fact, in just under 100 years their numbers have gone from an estimated 300,000 to over 30 million! Whitetail deer are so well-populated now that they’ve become pests for many farmers and individuals living in urban areas.
