I'm just curious what is the easiest way to tell the difference between a blacktail and a mule deer?
I know they look slight different but don't know the exact differences as I am new to hunting, what exactly should I be looking for? I have also heard that Mule usually do not have eyeguards, is this accurate and if so how accurate?
I'm hoping to hunt some blacktail next year and want to be sure I don't accidentally shoot the wrong one as I have a feeling that wouldn't go over too well.
If I saw them standing next to each other I am 100% confident that I could tell you which one is which, but somehow I don't think it's likely I'll just happen to find them standing next to each other when I'm hunting lol.
