some people would call it a bench leg but it was definitely a blacktail.  Small ears big black tail. shot in 578 so according to the state of washington it is a blacktail.
It is foolish and wrong to mourn these men.  Rather, we should thank god that such men lived.  -General George S. Patton

It is a benchleg.  Just because it has short ears and a bushy black tail doesn't hide the fact that it has other mulie characteristics.  If you shoot a buck within 20 or so miles West of the Cascades, it probably has some mule deer in it.  West Klickitat is definitely one of those units where the genetics are blended.

This is my biggest blacktail to date.  I took this picture while I was in taxidermy school in Montana.  This buck was taken 3 months before leaving for school.  Killed him on halloween day.
