Home from the Taxidermist.
« on: July 24, 2017, 11:22:27 AM »
I was very excited when I got the call on Friday that this guy was ready.  He was at a Taxidermist in Great Falls and I just happened to be going through there with the first half of my Training/Hunting camp.  So a quick stop at a U Haul and he's home where he belongs.  When I spotted him there were two others just as wide and just as tall but this was the only one that had all the stickers on him.  For the biologist that say Mulies and Whitetail don't cross breed I think this guy will prove them wrong.  His body was 100% Mulie, his rack is wide open for discussion.

In that country there is a lot of hybridization going on.  I have three cousins who ranch a lot of that area and they are seeing more and more of these crosses all the time.  The mule deer have moved into areas they weren't in in the past and the whitetails likewise. 

Nice deer!

Turned out great.

The bios that say that doesn't know what they are talking about. Mule deer and whitetail do cross breed.
