Mule Deer

Mule Deer

Most mule deer confine their daily movements to discrete home ranges which they use throughout the seasons in consecutive years.

Individuals of mule deer tend to confine their daily movements to discrete home ranges. Most mule deer with established home ranges use the same winter and summer home ranges in consecutive years.

Dispersal involves movements beyond the home range to distances of up to 8 kilometers. This movement results in the establishment of a new home range.
