The pelage of Mule Deer ranges from dark brown gray, dark and light ash-gray to brown and even reddish. The rump patch may be white or yellow, while the throat patch is white. The white tails of most mule deer terminate in a tuft of black hairs, or less commonly in a thin tuft of white hairs. On some mule deer, a dark dorsal line runs from the back, down the top of the tail, to the black tail tip. Adult Whitetail Deer have reddish-brown coats in summer which fade to a duller grayish-brown in winter.
Male deer (bucks), are easily recognizable in the summer and fall by their prominent set of antlers, which are grown annually and fall off in the winter. During the mating season, also called the rut, bucks fight over territory by using their antlers in sparring matches.
Bachelor groups of bucks are usually hunted early season in high alpine basins of British Columbia. We are only allowed to harvest bucks with a minimum of four (4) tines (points) on one side. These magnificent bucks can be hunted primarily or combined with other species.
