What is a female deer called?

Answer

Female deer are commonly called does but may also be referred to as hinds or cows. Male deer are commonly called stags but are also known as harts, bucks or bulls, while young deer are known as calfs or fawns.

Deer can be found on every continent except Antarctica and Australia. The deer family includes around 100 different species, including moose, elk and reindeer.

The deer is the only animal that has antlers, and these are typically only found on males, though the females of some species also have them. Deer can survive in most habitats but prefer edge habitats, such as croplands or woods.
