Original Pencil Drawing 'Deer Calf'
Hinds normally give birth to a single youngster, known as a calf, in late spring or early summer. Calves are born with a spotted coat to provide camouflage from predators. For the first few months of their life, they are left hidden in vegetation and only visited by their mother for short periods to suckle.
Outside the rut, males and females live separately. In open habitat, hinds and their young will gather in large herds, while stags live in loose bachelor groups. Deer are less social in woodland, typically living in smaller groups comprising a female and her young - Wildlife Trust.
