Colorado:Mule Deer - Episode 8 - Boone and Crockett Country
Not that long ago a cry when out that we were losing our mule deer herds in some areas, including trophy bucks. Viewed scientifically, all game species are subject to periodic changes in environmental conditions. Boone and Crockett trophy records reflect the recovery of our mule deer herds over the past century, and dips in entries linked to harsh winters and drought. Today, through out the west, mule deer herds are stable, increasing in some areas and recovering from tough range conditions in others.
