Default Mule Deer Question

For those that have taken MD with a trad bow, do they react to the shot like Whitetail? Most whitetail duck or turn when you shoot. Do mule deer do that same

No, they act/react nothing like whitetail. or at leas that has been my experience.

They stand there, and watch the arrow coming at them.

They are not "wired up" as tightly as whitetails (as jumpy)....I have never had one move until after the arrow hit it. YMMV

Ok I have noticed that on TV and the one I shot with my Wheel bow did not seem to react but I have never shot one with my trad gear and I am going to New Mexico in January for a hunt
