Deer, sometimes known as true deer, are ruminant animals with hooves that belong to the Cervidae family. The Cervinae includes the muntjac, elk (wapiti), red deer, fallow deer, and chital, and the Capreolinae, which includes the reindeer (caribou), roe deer, mule deer, and moose, are the two primary deer families. Except for the Chinese water deer, female reindeer and male deer of all species grow and shed new antlers every year. Permanently horned antelope, on the other hand, belong to a separate family (Bovidae) within the same order of even-toed ungulates (Artiodactyla).

The musk deer (Moschidae) of Asia and the chevrotains (Tragulidae) of tropical African and Asian forests belong to the ruminant group Ruminantia, although they are not closely related to the Cervidae.

Deer have been depicted in art since Paleolithic cave paintings, and they have appeared in mythology, religion, and literature throughout history, as well as in heraldry, such as red deer on the coat of arms of the country. Their meat is used as venison, and their skins are used as soft, durable buckskin, and their antlers are used as knife handles. Deer hunting has been a popular pastime since the Middle Ages, and it continues to be a valuable resource for many families today.

The definition of the term deer was initially wide, but as time passed, it became increasingly precise. A wild animal of any type was referred to as dor in Old English and der in Middle English. Other dead Germanic languages include cognates of Old English dor with the broad sense of animal, such as Old High German tior, Old Norse djur or dr, Gothic dius, Old Saxon dier, and Old Frisian diar. By the conclusion of the Middle English period, about 1500, this broad connotation had given way to the current English sense. Except for English and Scots, all modern Germanic languages maintain the more broad sense: for example, German Tier and Norwegian dyr both mean animal.

In modern English, the male deer is referred to as a buck, while the female is referred to as a doe. However, the names vary depending on the dialect and the size of the species. The male red deer is known as a stag, whereas the male of other big species is known as a bull, and the female is known as a cow, as in cattle. In ancient use, a male of any species was called a hart if he was above five years old, while a female was called a hind if she was three or more years old. A fawn is the young of tiny species, and a calf is the young of big species; a very small young maybe a kid. A havier man is one who has been castrated. A herd is a group of animals of any sort. The adjective cervine, like the family name Cervidae, comes from the Latin word Cervus, which means stag or deer.

Deer may be found in a wide range of biomes, from arctic to tropical rainforests. Many deer, while commonly associated with woods, are ecotone animals that thrive in places where forests and thickets (for shelter) meet grassland and savanna (open space).
