When the snow flies, deer hang out in cozy, tree-sheltered areas where they can nibble twigs and avoid the wind. They start getting ready for winter in the fall. They eat lots of acorns to pack on insulating fat. They also shed their light summer coats for heavy winter coats. This includes a top, water-resistant layer over a short, woolly layer next to their skin. Together, these layers keep them dry and warm. Learn more at mdc.mo.gov/field-guide.
