The Mule Deer is a species of deer indigenous to western North America. It's known for its large mule-like ears, from which it derives its name, and its unique antler configuration.
Mule Deer are recognized by their large ears, bifurcated (forked) antlers, and black-tipped white tail. Unlike the white-tailed deer which has tines growing off a main beam, mule deer antlers fork as they grow.
Their range stretches across the western half of North America, from the coastal islands of Alaska, down the West Coast to southern Baja Mexico, and from the northern Great Plains to the southern tip of Mexico.
They inhabit a wide range of ecosystems, from the coastal mountains of the Pacific Northwest to the Sonoran Desert. However, they particularly thrive in areas with a mix of open lands and forests.
Mule Deer are browsers and primarily feed on shrubs, though they also eat grasses, forbs, and browse on trees.
Common predators include mountain lions, wolves, coyotes, and bobcats. Fawns are particularly vulnerable and can also be preyed upon by eagles and bears.
Mule Deer use a combination of vocal sounds, body language, and scent marking to communicate. The "mule kick" is a notable defensive action against predators.
Unlike many other deer species, Mule Deer antlers are bifurcated, meaning they fork as they grow, resulting in a unique appearance.
The prime time for hunting Mule Deer is usually during the rut or breeding season, which varies by region but often falls in late fall.
