Thunderstorms and Deer Movement
Name: Dennis P.
How does a severe storm with thunder and lightning effect the movement of deer?
A wildlife biologist, who has worked extensively with white-tailed deer research and management,
tells me that deer, like most wild animals, will move less during rain and seek shelter from heavy
rain if it is available, but apparently are pretty much unaffected by thunder and lightning.
