Differential loss of fat and protein by mule deer during winter



Differential loss of fat and protein by mule deer during winter



Journal of Wildlife Management, 491: 80-85



Body composition of hand-reared mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus) was studied by use of tritiated water (HTO) over a 120-day period. Energy intake was controlled at different levels for 3 treatment groups. All treatment groups received submaintenance rations to ensure catabolism of energy reserves. Changes in total body water indicated catabolism of both fat and protein reserves. High-intake animals lost less fat (38%) than either medium- (46%) or low- (67%) intake deer.
