Abstract

Water, lipid, and mineral composition were determined for metacarpals, phalanges, livers, and antlers from 219 free-ranging white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) collected on six properties in East Feliciana Parish, Louisiana (USA) to provide baseline data and to identify sources of composition variation. Metacarpal and phalangeal composition varied primarily with deer age; liver composition varied with deer sex.
