    I think it should like in dense forest/woodland. After all the effort put into the other biomes the woodlands seem empty. Adding deer to the woodlands will liven up the place a bit. Making baby deer hide would also be a nice touch (hiding like the fox)

    I think deer would be great to add, I think they should be found anywhere and fast but not to fast. I also think they would drop antlers that you can hang on your wall and also drop meat

    Suggested Changes:

    1. All forest biomes

    2. Antlers not horns. Antlers can be used in brewing to create animal friendship potions (animals that run away, such as cats, rabbits and deer no longer do, bees and wolves are not aggressive when attacked, and farm animals have a chance to follow the player as if they held wheat/carrots)

    3. Antlers craft into bonemeal like bone, and you can craft two antlers with wood to create mounted antlers which can be placed on the side of a block. If the block it is placed on is destroyed, moved, or activated by redstone, the antlers fall dealing 4 (2 hearts) of damage to anything it drops on and breaks, dropping 2 antlers.

    4. In lush caves, a variant of deer have a chance of spawning called glow deer, which have an altered texture similar to glow squid but purple. When killed they drop amethyst as well as antlers, and if sheared they turn into normal deer dropping 5 amethyst clusters of various growth stages. 

    5. Naming a deer Rudolph gives him a red nose and cute eyes. :)

    Deer are nice to be added, but make their spawn rate low which will make them rare to be found. Stags would occasionally rub their antlers to trees that would turn the tree trunk become its striped version. Stags will also occasionally fight each other just like irl - fight for does and dominancy in their herd-, and about the antler thing I guess after two stags have a fight one of them will drop its antler as if it break, so you don't have to kill them. Albino deer would be even rarer to be found. It is possible to breed albino deer, and perhaps their breed mechanism would be like pandas (something that deals with genes)
    Now that's a challenge

    Maybe it could also drop venison when killed, which would give a player something to eat. Maybe you could make venison stew with a bowl or just cook it in a furnace to get cooked venison. It would add a new food option to the game that would come with the new mob.

    Yes! Deer are so common I’m very surprised they are not in the game. Perhaps there’s could be a tundra version called an Elk that lives in packs? Also Elk are larger. This would be so cool and would be so cool to see in the distance!
