#689 White-tailed deer


Both Mule Deer and White-tailed deer are found in Wyoming
but Mule Deer are more prevalent.I see muleys daily where I live in
the Lander Valley located on the eastern slopes of the Wind River Range.
Occasionally, White-tails are to be found on the western slopes of the continental
divide, but not often.White-tails are typically considered an eastern deer but we have
them and the further east you go from Wyoming,the more common they become . . .
the Rocky Mountains are the cut-off of their range to the west.

My studio is located on a river that flows into the eastern drainage of the Wind River
and there is a resident herdof White-tail deer a few miles northwest of us . . .
we don't see them often but today a doe and a yearling were out in the harsh,
snowy weather.  Below, are images.














Below, are images of etchings entitled,"First Snow" and "White-tail in Snow".





Below, are images of sculptures entitled, "Swamp Buck" and "White-tail".
