Grazing Mule Deer

IMG_5183a

Mule deer grazing.  Mule deer are different from whitetail deer because they don’t have a whitetail and they have those longer mule-like ears.  This is one of a half dozen or so mule deer I see every day grazing near the Morefield Village Campground in Mesa Verde National Park.  It appears to me they still have their Winter coats, which is understandable because it gets down to around freezing here at night, but warms up into the seventies during the day, that would be in the twenties Celsius.  I have seen a couple different bucks with this herd and they are in velvet.
