Deer normally will not jump a 6-foot fence; but if chased or threatened, they can clear an 8-foot fence on level ground. Because of this ability, a 7- or 8-foot fence is recommended, especially where mule deer are found.
Dressed, they range between 200 and 285 pounds, which figures out to be around 260 to 350 pounds on the hoof. While I love the record books, there are other “inches” that constitute a big mule deer. The pedicles from which the antlers grow typically gain diameter as the buck ages.
If given the chance, mule deer can live up to approximately 12 years of age. A mule deer’s life typically begins in May or June.
White-tailed deer can jump almost eight feet high, so effective upright fences against them should be this high. Deer may be able to jump high, but not both high and over a distance. So a fence may not be as high, perhaps six feet, but slanted outward. The deer will try walking under the fence and meet resistance.
Deer will jump over common garden fences. A deer proof garden fence should be at least 7 feet in height. For very small areas like a 25 x 25 garden area, 6 foot high fences can be adequate in some areas with light deer pressure. Deer are more likely to jump a garden fence if they can sense how high the barrier is.
In order to catch their prey, tigers are capable of short bursts of high speed running. The deer runs faster than tiger in my opinion deer desire only for his life save and he looks back the tiger chase in running time.
Yes, dogs can outrun Whitetail Deer, but only the good dogs will kill them and bring them home.
Surprisingly, it turns out that your average fit human can outrun a deer. The deer is more of a sprinter, than a marathon runner. On a warmish day (around 27°C) it took him about four hours to run down the deer over a distance of 24 kilometres, across the open range lands and orchards near his home.

There is really no precise way to accurately do deer aging while hunting, other than looking at the teeth. Despite the many stories hunters tell each other, the size of the antlers and the number of points on the antlers is not a reliable age guide. Antler size is more a function of diet and heredity than it is of age.
about 13 to 14 inches for yearling and 2.5-year- old bucks and about 15 inches on bucks 3.5 years old and older. extending to the tip of the nose are generally 20 or more inches in length. yearling bucks can produce 6, 8, or even 10 antler points (see above).
If the coloring is lighter on its third tooth, or the tooth is just starting to develop, the deer is a little older than one year old. If the third tooth is the same color as the rest of the teeth, the deer could be anywhere between 2.5 years old to a fully matured deer. Look at the enamel on the teeth.
