Cattle require worming every so often. Do deer have this need?

No. Studies have found that internal parasite loads go hand-in-hand with deer health. If the deer are healthy, they have some natural ability to fight off internal parasites. As long as food volume and quality are good year round, no worries.

In fact, internal parasite counts are used as a measure of herd health. Increased parasites mean the deer are nutritionally stressed.
