• White-tailed deer mating consists of an ejaculatory thrust which takes place during a brief copulatory jump. This is why deer are known as the one-pump chump of the forest.

• Mature bucks also emit a grunt-snort-wheeze pattern, unique to each animal, that asserts its dominance, much like white guys in bars.

• Texas is home to the most white-tailed deer of any U.S. state or Canadian province, with an estimated population of over four million. They all voted for Gary Johnson.

• The white-tailed deer raises its tail when it is alarmed to warn the predator that it has been detected. This is deer- speak for “not today fucker, look at my asshole instead”.
