    During breeding a group including a stag with lots of hinds is called a____________ (all lowercase)

    Explanation
    During breeding, a group including a stag with lots of hinds is called a "harem." In the animal kingdom, a harem refers to a social structure where a dominant male, in this case, the stag, mates with multiple females, the hinds. This term is commonly used to describe the mating system of certain species such as deer, elephants, and seals, where the dominant male monopolizes access to mating opportunities with the females in the group. The harem structure ensures reproductive success for the dominant male while limiting the reproductive opportunities for other males in the population.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Never separate a deer from the herd- as it is more likely to fly
    D. Make sure the deer can see each other at all times
    E. Have circular yards as deer want to get away from you and thus move fast around corners
    G. Have trees and coverage along runs so deer thing is is an escape route
    H. Follow a routine
    I. Work with their flight distance
    K. Have netting over the gate to stop deer running through it
    M. Use a pushing gate to get them into the crush
    Explanation
    The appropriate things to do when handling or yarding deer include never separating a deer from the herd, as it is more likely to panic and run away. It is important to make sure the deer can see each other at all times to reduce stress and maintain their sense of security. Circular yards are recommended as deer naturally want to escape, and the curved shape helps them move quickly around corners. Having trees and coverage along runs creates the illusion of an escape route, which can help in guiding the deer. Following a routine and working with their flight distance, as well as using netting over the gate and a pushing gate to guide them into the crush, are also effective strategies.

    What is the killing out percentage 

    • A.

      The number of deer from your herd that you cull each season

    • B.

      The number of deer in your herd that die from injury/ illness etc.

    • C.

      The edible part of the carcass

    Correct Answer
    C. The edible part of the carcass
    Explanation
    The killing out percentage refers to the portion of the carcass that is edible after an animal has been slaughtered. It is a measure of the efficiency of the butchering process, indicating how much of the animal's body can be used for consumption. This percentage does not include the number of deer culled each season or the number of deer that die from injury or illness, as these factors are unrelated to the edibility of the carcass.

  • 6. 

    Deer are mostly killed young or post rut  because

    • A.

      The cost of feeding then becomes too high

    • B.

      They have lower fat distribution

    • C.

      Breeding is over and the males are no longer required

    Correct Answer
    B. They have lower fat distribution
    Explanation
    Deer are mostly killed young or post rut because they have lower fat distribution. This means that they have less fat stored in their bodies compared to older or pre-rut deer. As a result, they may not have enough energy reserves to survive the harsh winter months when food is scarce. Additionally, lower fat distribution may make them more vulnerable to predators and diseases. Therefore, hunters often target younger or post-rut deer as they are easier to kill and provide less risk of spoiling meat due to lower fat content.

    Select all of the correct answers. what can farmers do to get deer up to target weight before a year of age

    • A.

      Later calving

    • B.

      Use of large terminal sires

    • C.

      Select for superior growing sire

    • D.

      Modify the growth pattern artificially

    • E.

      Stop using AI

    • F.

      Increase feed in the winter

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Use of large terminal sires
    C. Select for superior growing sire
    D. Modify the growth pattern artificially
    F. Increase feed in the winter
    Explanation
    Farmers can use large terminal sires to breed with the deer, as these sires are known for their ability to produce offspring with faster growth rates. They can also select for superior growing sires, which means choosing bucks with desirable traits for growth and weight gain. Additionally, farmers can modify the growth pattern artificially by implementing management practices such as controlled feeding and supplementation to ensure the deer reach their target weight before a year of age. Increasing feed in the winter is also important as it provides the necessary nutrients and energy for the deer to grow and reach their target weight.

    Bruising of the carcass is a big issue with deer transporting

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Bruising of the carcass during deer transportation is indeed a significant issue. When deer are not handled properly or are subjected to rough handling, it can result in bruises on the carcass. These bruises can affect the quality and value of the meat, making it less desirable for consumption or sale. Therefore, it is important to handle deer carcasses carefully during transportation to minimize bruising and ensure the highest quality meat.

    Deer are long day breeders

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Deer are actually short day breeders, meaning they breed during the fall and early winter when days are shorter. This is because the shorter days trigger hormonal changes in deer, leading to mating and breeding. Therefore, the statement "Deer are long day breeders" is incorrect.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Deer begin breeding at how many months

    • A.

      12

    • B.

      14

    • C.

      16

    • D.

      18

    Correct Answer
    C. 16
    Explanation
    Deer typically begin breeding at around 16 months of age. This is the age at which they reach sexual maturity and are able to reproduce. Breeding usually occurs during the fall, known as the rutting season, when males compete for mates and engage in displays of dominance. At 16 months, deer have reached a size and physical development that allows them to participate in mating activities and contribute to the population's reproduction.

    • C.

      2 years

    • D.

      2.5 years

    Correct Answer
    A. Year
    Explanation
    Deer produce a calf every year. This means that they give birth to a baby deer, known as a calf, once every year. The reproductive cycle of deer allows them to reproduce annually, ensuring a steady population growth. This frequent reproduction is beneficial for the species as it increases their chances of survival and adaptation to changing environments.

    • D.

      Autumn

    Correct Answer
    C. Summer
    Explanation
    The correct answer is summer because it is the season when deer calves are typically born. During the summer months, food is abundant, and the weather is favorable for the survival and growth of the young calves. Additionally, the warmer temperatures provide a better environment for the calves to thrive and develop their strength and agility. Therefore, summer is the most suitable season for deer calves to be born.

    • D.

      8 months

    • E.

      12 months

    Correct Answer
    D. 8 months
    Explanation
    Deer gestation refers to the length of time it takes for a deer to carry and develop its offspring before giving birth. The correct answer is 8 months. This means that it takes approximately 8 months for a deer to go through the entire process of pregnancy, from conception to birth.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Deer offspring are weaned at what age/ season

    • A.

      2-3 months summer

    • B.

      2-3months autumn

    • C.

      2-3 months winter

    • D.

      2-3months spring

    Correct Answer
    A. 2-3 months summer
    Explanation
    Deer offspring are weaned at 2-3 months in the summer. Weaning refers to the process of transitioning young animals from their mother's milk to solid food. Summer is typically a time when there is an abundance of vegetation and food sources available for deer, making it an ideal season for the young deer to start eating on their own. At 2-3 months of age, the deer offspring have developed enough to begin consuming solid food and are no longer solely dependent on their mother's milk.

    • D.

      15-17 years

    Correct Answer
    D. 15-17 years
    Explanation
    The breeding life of a hind refers to the period during which a female deer is capable of reproducing. The correct answer is 15-17 years, which means that a hind can reproduce for approximately 15 to 17 years. This suggests that female deer have a relatively long reproductive lifespan compared to other animals.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    When is the optimal time for velveting of red deer

    • A.

      24 days from casting

    • B.

      35 days from casting

    • C.

      46 days from casting

    • D.

      55 days from casting

    Correct Answer
    D. 55 days from casting
    Explanation
    The optimal time for velveting of red deer is 55 days from casting. This means that after the deer has shed its antlers, it takes approximately 55 days for the new antlers to reach their peak velvet stage. During this time, the antlers are covered in a soft, velvety layer of skin and are highly sensitive. This is the best time for velvet harvesting, as the antlers are at their highest quality and contain the most nutrients.
