Data from: Reproductive effort and success of males in scramble competition polygyny: evidence for trade-offs between foraging and mate-search

Aaron M. Foley, David G. Hewitt, Randy W. DeYoung, Matthew J Schnupp, Mickey W Hellickson & Mitch A. Lockwood
1. Patterns of male reproductive allocation provide insight into life-history characteristics. The trade-offs associated with resource and female group defense are well-defined. However, less is understood about trade-offs in species that practice scramble-competition polygyny, where successful strategies may favor competitive mate-searching rather than contest competition and fighting. 2. White-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) practice scramble-competition polygyny where solitary males search for and assess receptivity of females scattered across the landscape. Physically mature males are expected to...
