Back in September I saw this herd of mule deer just outside of Roxborough Park. One of the most interesting things I noticed was there was a couple of bucks with these red rust colored horns. I had never seen a mule deer with this shade of horn. My only guess is there is something environmental with the red rocks in the area that is making for this red colored horn. Most of the mule deer have the white/gray/tan/bone colored horns. Anyway I was close enough to capture this image and thought I would share it with you today.
Anyone ever seen a red horned mule deer before?
