Reader Question: Will whitetail deer eat carrots?

Hunting Magazine Answer: Whitetail deer are browsers, meaning that they eat a variety of different plants depending on the season. In the summer, they will eat leaves, grasses, and other plants. In the winter, they will eat twigs, branches, and other woody plants. Carrots are not a part of their natural diet, so it’s unlikely that whitetail deer will eat them. However, if they’re desperate for food, they may nibble on a carrot or two. If you’re looking to attract whitetail deer to your yard, you’re better off offering them foods that are more natural for them, such as acorns, corn, apples, and alfalfa. These foods will provide the whitetail deer with the nutrients they need to stay healthy and thrive.

In Conclusion
