White-tailed Deer (Odocoileus virginianus)
Damage caused by white-tailed deer can occur throughout the growing season. Because deer lack upper incisors damage to young plants and stems have a rough appearance. Rather than biting completely through the stem, deer grab and pull.
Most damage occurs during evening hours although peak activity by white-tailed deer occurs at dawn and dusk.
