Mule Deer Hunting Region in Northern British ColumbiaMule Deer

Mule Deer (Odocoileus hemionus) is a deer whose habitat is located in the western half of North America. Named after the big ears like mules. Adult male mule deer are called dollars, adult females are called, and the young of both sexes are called fawns. The black-tailed deer is considered by some as a distinct species, but is classified as a subspecies of mule deer. Unlike its cousin, the white-tailed deer, mule deer are generally associated with the country west of the Missouri River. Main differences between deer and deer mule are the color of their tails and the configuration of their antlers. The mule deer's tail is black tipped. Mule deer antlers forks, or "fork" as they grow instead of branching from a beam (like the white-tailed). Each year, the antlers of a deer begin to grow in spring and are shed after mating season from mid January to mid April. Dollar mule deer are more prominent ears than females. Instead of running, mule deer move with a bounding leap (punches) with all four feet down together.

The mule deer is the largest of the Odocoileus genus, standing, on average, 40-42 inches (100-110 cm) in the shoulders and 80 inches (200 cm) or so nose to tail. A mature buck weighs 150-300 pounds (68-140 kg) may represent an average of 125-175 pounds ago (57-79 kg). Responsibility is an occasional trophy-sized mule deer can weigh about 500 pounds (230 kilograms). The Mule Deer do not clearly show variation in size throughout their range and Whitetail deer.
