Here are some pictures of a cute little guy who has been hanging around for a couple of weeks. He is mule deer and whitetail cross, I see them around here from time to time but this one is cuter than most, check out the size of his ears - they are huge in comparison to his head. Thinking maybe I should call him Dumbo

Love it, thanks for the pics.

Great photos

I wonder which type of tag a hunter would need? confused

I see no hint of whitetail there. What am I missing?

I'm always extremely reluctant to buy into deer that people call cross bred. 🤔

Those are big ears. Looks like a car with the doors open.

I had the same reluctance - until I killed one and wondered what might happen because I had a Mule Deer tag and the Coues influence was obvious. Happens in AZ sometimes.

And there are arbitrary lines in places, like the one in WA, where one side determines blacktail, the other mule deer. As if they never cross to the other side. And get up to shenanigans.

I don’t see whitetail either.
What makes it a cross?

I took this one north of Brackettville Texas.

They had started a management program the year I got on the lease. Rules were that if it was 5+ years old and no brow tines it was a cull.

They would not call this a cull.


I've long thought that this might be a cross.

What do you guys think?

"What do you guys think?"

Weirdo?

If some folks who have questions, now that it's 2022, maybe they could get some genetic testing done?

My BIL killed on outside of Glenwood Springs, CO several years ago, it had a whitetail rack with no bifurcation to the antler tines. It had the ears and tail of a muley.
