Mule deer shed hunting is different than whitetail.
Being highly migratory, big muleys sometimes spend their winter months many miles from their fall domains.
That’s because all over the western states the mule deer is, by and large, a high country animal and its just not possible to winter at 6-9 thousand feet in elevation. So hunting mule deer sheds won’t be quite as advantageous for the hunter looking to pattern big bucks for the upcoming season.
This shouldn’t deter you though, a handsome set of muley sheds is hard to beat and the rugged, south-facing country most deer winter in, will keep you in good shape for the upcoming year.
