Default Wyoming mule deer

We manage a ranch's wildlife up here and get some hunting rights on it. Waited til this last week of the season for our deer hunt, pre rut kicks in somewhat and the mature bucks star staging with doe groups.
The spouse found this nice management buck and couldn't pass him up. He had about 15 doe bedded below him on the ridge. We rode right by them on the way in and spotted the buck bedded on the way out. It was about 50 ish degrees that day and nice weather for hunting.
That evening the weather blew in and it snowed all day Sunday, wind blew it all sideways, no hunting.
Monday morning woke to blue skies and 4 degrees with 5 inches of fluffy snow, just enough to limit our travel around the ranch. We found this nice youngish 4 pt with a few doe and he was not smart enough to vacate the area.
The 300wsm had no issues with the cold.

Nice job. You may need an extra freezer this year lol. You sure have been whacking and stacking. Congrats!

On a side note. That first buck looks like his mama could have been messing around with a whitetail.

I keep confusing myself, so I will just ask. Is the first deer a whitetail with a mule deer face - OR - a mule deer with whitetail antlers?

He's just a muley with what we call a pretty 3 pt rack, they can also have a forked rear tine and we call those the ugly 3 pts. The 3 pts are pretty common, especially on this ranch.

A little too early for my liking. Have you filled all your tags yet? We still have whitetail tags and cow elk but looking like the snow may inhibit our cow elk hunting unless we warm up enough to melt it off.
Roads are open down here but pretty iffy.
My thermometer in the sun says 10 right now, don't believe it.
Hope you're staying warm up your way.

Same temps here with lows tonight about -9 below. Yes, it is too early to be this cold but is supposed to warm up to low 30's for the high towards the end of the week. So much for a warmer than normal winter I have been hearing about!
I have a whitetail tag and general deer tag to fill yet and a cow/calf tag as well. Heading up north this weekend to hunt whitetails, it is a Nov 1-30 tag. My elk tag runs through December 21st.
Those are the only tags I drew this year but have been out guiding a couple of friends for antelope.
