As far as Texas deer, the desert mule deer is the less common cousin of Texas’ most prominent deer—the whitetail. Because its range is found in the least populated regions of Texas, many aren’t as familiar with the deer who roams chiefly in the Texas Panhandle and the mountains and basins of the Trans-Pecos. It’s a cousin to the more manic whitetail, and that’s part of the biological problem. The mule deer as a species isn’t as adaptable as the whitetail, doesn’t breed as quickly or as often as a whitetail, has a narrow range of acceptable habitats and doesn’t feed or breed as aggressively as the whitetail and therefore is more easily extirpated.
