Athletic mule deer

In case you hadn't noticed mule deer are different from whitetails when it comes to their escape strategy. Mule deer are the ones with big ears (about 25% bigger). Whitetails run through the brush, tails up, and at lightening speed. Mule deer, instead, use a stiff, four-footed bounce called a “stott” (think Pepe le Pew)--as high as two feet and as far as 15 feet. This skill makes them difficult to catch in rugged terrain.
