We've gone for walks down in the Oldman River valley the last few evenings and have always come across some sort of wildlife. This evening we happened upon a mule deer doe and her fawn. They couldn't have cared any less that we were there. I've seen many deer in my life but I always enjoy watching them and their behaviour. Especially the fawn's curiosity.
Mule deer are among the different species of deer in this area. They are known for their big ears (which resemble those of a mule), their black tipped tail, larger bodies (than a whitetail), and the male's antlers are forked instead of growing off of a single beam like the whitetail's. There are many subspecies of Mule deer that range across the western United States and Canada.
