Muley???? That sure looks like a whitetail to me. One heck of a nice one at that! I wonder what the real story is.

The biologist reported the score as "typical". Maybe there is more to the story, but it does look whitetail to me. Maybe it is one of those Hybrid deer.

I realize that deer come in all kinds of shades and their tails are never alike but I think that the deer does resemble a whitetail to me....and even his tail does too....????? who knows lol

the rack and body proportions says whitetail, but the color and lack of throat patch says mulie. wonder if its one of those mix dealies?

Besides big ears and no throat patch when was the last time you saw a whitetail with a crew cut?

The ears appear to be normal whitetail size to me and the fact that it's lacking a throat patch doesn't mean it can't be a whitetail,
It's rare but there are whitetails without the white throat patch..
Here's a pic of a Whitetail with no throat patch
I personally think it looks more whitatail than Muley BUT it's hard to say with just this one picture.
