Male deer are called bucks, female deer are called does, and baby deer are called fawns. A doe will give birth to one to three fawns. The buck does not stay to help raise the fawns—the doe raises them alone. The male deer has antlers that come out of bone plates in his head. When the antlers begin to grow, they have a thin layer of felt covering them.
