As a friend, they teach you how to fight, by using its antlers and they are very gentle. When sparring with a smaller deer they make sure to use only the smaller antlers so as not to hurt the young ones.

Does choose the buck that they will breed. Making sure that their potential mates have the genes that will be passed on the fawns, healthy and smart on surviving and reproducing. Those born under this sign knows who and what they want.
