Mule Deer

Mule Deer

Mule Deer are one of the majestic icons of the American West. Elusive and always alert to danger, they are admired by hunters and outdoorsmen. Mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus) are stout and stocky, powerfully built, and about a third larger than their cousins, the whitetail deer. They are a very popular game animal that is difficult to hunt, due to their keen senses and awareness of their surroundings.
