Terry Bowyer, John G. We retrospectively tested whether differences in activity patterns and foraging efficiency by males and females were responsible for sexual segregation in mule deer Odocoileus hemionus. These deer spatially segregated by sex during the dry season May—October , which encompassed parturition, and aggregated during the wet season November—April , which included rut. Activity did not differ among types of social groups of deer mixed-sex, adult male, or adult female , but was greater during the dry season than in the wet season. Foraging efficiency percentage of active deer feeding was greater in mixed-sex groups than in groups of either adult males or adult females during both wet and dry seasons.

Spatial separation of the sexes occurred throughout the dry portion of the year May—October , but was most pronounced during and immediately following the fawning period June—August. Bucks occurred most frequently on dry meadows during sexual segregation, and does and fawns primarily in moister meadows. Bucks occurred farther from summer sources of water than did other sex and age classes of deer. Sexual segregation was not attributable to food habits or selection of vegetative types. However, the percent cover of Sisymbrium altissimum , a preferred food, was higher and in earlier phenological stages on ranges occupied primarily by does than in meadows where bucks predominated.
