I finished my doe today. It is a mule deer doe, nibbling on willow leaves. Mule deer have such big ears. When I first saw one I could hardly believe my eyes. Not to be biased, but I’d rather draw a dozen mule deer than one white-tailed deer.
I saw this doe about three weeks ago when we went down to the Klamath Basin to camp. A small group of deer were feeding in the strip of land between wetlands and a steep rocky cliff. That area isn't hunted, so the deer are quite tolerant of our presence.
