The smallest and most abundant animal in the deer/elk/moose family, Montana sees both mule deer and White-Tailed Deer.
MULE DEER earn their name from their large ears. Their coats are gray during winter and brown in the summer months. They have short, round tails with a black tip and their antlers fork and then fork again, usually leaving four tines on each side. Mule Deer are more migratory than their white-tailed relatives. Don’t be surprised if you see a muley hanging out around town; they’re “comfortable” in their shared habitat. For more, visit Montana Field Guide.
WHITE-TAILED DEER are noted for their large, white-bottomed tails that can be seen as they run away. Their coats are grayish-brown in winter and reddish-brown during summer. White-Tailed Deer stay on a small home range and are mostly nocturnal and solitary. You’ll find them along creeks and rivers, and occasionally in town. For more, visit Montana Field Guide.
