Are deer nocturnal or diurnal?

Topics: AnimalsMammalsDeer, Science


Justina Bennett

Whitetail deer are diurnal, with a crepuscular bias, which means that undisturbed deer will move both during the day and at night, but mainly in the hours near dusk and dawn. When hunted or otherwise disturbed regularly, they may become almost totally noctural. Weather and moon phase are also believed to influence when a deer is likely to move around.
