Here is our collection of Mule deer pictures. We love mule deer photos and we are going to increase the number of Mule deer pictures in this section as soon as we are able. Feel free to download any of the Mule deer pictures for your personal use. Here is a bit of information on the Mule Deer.
The Mule Deer, while closely related to the eastern species-the white-tailed deer, are remarkably distinct in their biological, ecological, and behavioral attributes.
The Mule Deer carries its thin, black-tipped tail drooped, unlike the uplifted, bushy white tail of its cousin. They have a distinctly different gait from the leisurely, graceful leaps of the white-tail. When startled, a Mule Deer will move in a series of stiff-legged jumps with all four feet hitting the ground together.
Mule Deer are usually a dark gray-brown, with a small white rump patch and a small, black-tipped tail. Their large ears are distinctive. White-tail deer are tan in color, with a larger tail.
Mule Deer antlers are normally smaller and branch to form 2 equal forks, while the male White-tailed Deer has forward curving antlers with a number of points (tines) branching from the main beam.
Mule deer are popular among deer hunters. For mule deer trophies and hunting stories click on the links in our menu on the left.
