General rule- colder climate, larger representatives of the species. With that said, habitat and diet also play a role. There is a lot of geographic and hence habitat/diet diversity in Texas. For the most part, the whitetail deer in the Texas Hill Country are smaller but with respectable racks.
How high can deer jump?
White-tailed deer can jump almost eight feet high, so effective upright fences against them should be this high. Deer may be able to jump high, but not both high and over a distance. So a fence may not be as high, perhaps six feet, but slanted outward. The deer will try walking under the fence and meet resistance.

What are the squiggly lines on a deer skull?
I got fascinated with the wonderful lines created by the sutures (and I just now had to call my anatomy teacher pal to ask her if it was “ reticulation ” or “articulation”, and she said since it’s a joint, it’s “articulation”). They allow tiny amounts of movement, which makes the skull less vulnerable.
