White-tail and Mules
[Return to Topics]

We have alot of deer out here in our fields,both breeds, how do these breeds stay pure? Can they cross-breed or do they. I have often wondered about this since they graze side by side.

Dan,
Just read about this recently. Yes, they do
interbreed. Mainly, whitetail bucks with muley
does. Seems the whitail buck are much more
aggresive (horny?) when it comes to breeding than
the muleys.

Back in the 1920's the Pa Game Commission brought in some mule deer and released them around Ft. Indiantown Gap. To this day, there are occasional big bucks with huge brown antlers. Per the local game folks, these are the mule deer genes coming out.

You live near Ft. Indiantown Gap/Annville/Hershey? I went to an Annual Training there back in '81 when I was in the National Guard. Enjoyed it a lot and have since then gone back to the area a few times on vacation.

I've always thought they didn't intermix but up toward Sundance (North East Wyoming) they did and it got out of hand. State was darn near giving whitetail tags out trying to get them thined out. Then the white tails got some sort of dease and really thined them out but didn't hurt the muleys. Don't know whats gonna happen now. Too many mild winters and we're over run with both again.

Too mild a winters,and too many bambi thinkers.Here in Alabama,we have more doe days than ever due to overpopulation.Hard to convince non hunters this is right.

We don't have Whitetails but we do have Blacktails which are Mule Deer but real small, they can have huge racks, 12, 14 & 16 points only in Oregon, we only count one side, 6,7 & 8.
