MULE DEER

If you are looking for things to do in Bisbee, AZ, consider embarking on a riveting journey with Big Jeep Tours. Nestled in the heart of Bisbee, Arizona, our tour promises an unparalleled encounter with the region's local fauna, starring the distinctive Mule Deer.


Our Bisbee tours offer an enriching opportunity to observe these enchanting creatures, named after their large, mule-like ears, within their natural habitat. The Mule Deer are remarkable animals, with a unique appearance that sets them apart. Unlike their whitetail counterparts whose antlers grow in a single main beam, Mule Deer's antlers fork as they mature, creating a beautiful silhouette against the backdrop of Bisbee's stunning landscapes.


Adding to their charm is their intriguing behavior. They are noted for their peculiar locomotion style - a phenomenon known as stotting or pronking. This behavior, where all four of the deer's feet hit the ground simultaneously while bounding, renders them an enthralling spectacle, especially when witnessed in their natural surroundings.


Another awe-inspiring aspect of the Mule Deer is their impressive size and strength. Adult males, known as bucks, can weigh as much as 330 pounds and stand about 3.5 feet tall at the shoulder. Sightings of these robust creatures can truly be a breathtaking experience.


Through our tours, you will also gain insights into our ongoing Mule Deer conservation efforts. As you navigate the expanse of the Arizona wilderness, you'll learn about the integral role these deer play in the ecosystem, and how you can contribute to the preservation of these wonderful animals.


Remember to bring along your camera. The sight of Mule Deer grazing against the picturesque settings of Bisbee offers a perfect photo opportunity for nature enthusiasts and wildlife photographers alike.
