    You guys had some great answers to my cullbuck question. I know.. I mean I think I know that a mature whitetail buck starts his decline after 5 1/2 yrs. What about a mule deer? and how long would a mulie live without being harvested. There is a whitetail doe in the upper peninsula that has mothered 23 fawns last I knew, so figure at least 12 yrs. old for a whitetail right?

    Usually the first year a doe will drop one fawn, then if in good condition she should have 2 per year. Ocassionally she might drop three.

      I believe twelve is on the high end of a whitetails life expectancy. Very high end.

        In really good habitat, does can have a lot of babies. I've seen plenty of triplets, and even a handful of quadruplets down in Southeastern OH.
