To see a deer in your dream symbolises grace, compassion, gentleness, meekness and natural beauty. It has feminine qualities and may point to the feminine aspect within yourself. It also represents independence, alertness, and virility. Consider the symbol to be a pun for someone who is “dear” to you. Alternatively, the dream represents vulnerability and naiveté. As a result, others may take advantage of you and your gullibility.

If the deer is black, then it means that you are not acknowledging or are rejecting the feminine qualities in you. You may not be in tune with your feminine side. 

To dream that you hunt or kill a dear suggests that you are trying to suppress those feminine qualities. 

Dreaming that you are bottle feeding a baby deer highlights your nurturing attribute. A baby animal is often a symbol of your own child.
