Mule Deer Buck

Today’s Tip:  Deer Hunting

A key difference in the mating habits of mule deer and whitetail deer is that mule deer bucks attempt to build a harem of does (much like bull elk do with cows), whereas a whitetail buck will pursue one doe at a time.  This important to understand if you are hunting either species during the rut, as the bucks behavior is decidedly different during this time.  If you are an experienced hunter of one species, don’t expect to employ the same hunting tactics when hunting the other species.  I will have more to write about this in the future.
