Amazing Roe deer in the mating season


deer are polygynous, with courtship and mating occurring within the group. From November to February, bucks evenly matched in strength and size compete in battles for access to mate with females. Gestation lasts 6 to 7 months and one or two fawns are born in early summer. 


There are often twin births after the first pregnancy. Nursing fawns stay hidden during the day in the underbrush while their mothers are away. They begin to accompany their mothers within a few weeks. The weaning process begins when the fawns are around 5 weeks old and it is usually completed by the time they are 16 weeks old. 


They usually stay with their mothers for their first full year. Does are sexually mature at about 18 months old but young bucks are not permitted to mate until the age of 3 or 4 years.
