Not true. Does will carry their rail raised and at an angle when they are looking to breed. Deer when encountering each other will wag their tails like a dog as a sign of non-aggression. They also flick their tail while feeding and displays calm, like the subtle clucking of a feeding turkey. Flagging when alarmed is only one type of communication and is used in different stages. Knowing how to read a deer's tail can mean the difference between getting a shot or not. Same goes for their ear movement. I have actually called unalarmed deer from across the field by imitating ear and tail flicks using just my hands.
