Ayaapeensa Kiilhswa (Young Buck Moon) is one of two lunar months named for White-tailed Deer (Odocoileus virginianus).  To the best of our knowledge, this month is associated with the beginning of the rut (breeding cycle) for White-tailed Deer.

ayaapeensa (young White-tailed buck)*

In some years, the younger males lose their antlers by the end of this month.  Today, there is a lot of variation within the White-tailed Deer populations regarding when bucks drop their antlers.  It appears that historically, the young White-tailed Deer bucks dropped their antlers first.  The loss of antlers marks the end of the rut (the breeding cycle) for these younger male deer.
