Abstract

Movement and cropping rate influences forage selectivity of deer. Previously, I found that male and female black-tailed deer (Odocoileus hemionus columbianus) had similar cropping rates on acorns. Herein, I tested whether movement rates differed between the sexes when deer fed on acorns. I detected a relationship between movement rate and acorn abundance but no intersexual differences in movement. Male and female deer foraged on acorns in a similar manner because they had similar movement and cropping rates.
