  Mule Deer (DesertUSA)
Mule Deer antlers are normally smaller and branch to form 2 equal forks, while the male White-tailed Deer has forward curving antlers with a number of points (tines) branching from the main beam.

Mule Deer moves between various zones from the forest edges at higher elevations to the desert floor, depending on the season.
