So did we in the West (Ore, Wa and Cal) It was called a forked horn. A spike was not hunted or shot.

We don't count both sides...they only do that in places with little deer.


Define little Deer.

If they have a fork on both sides we in Oregon call it a forky if it has a fork on one side and a spike on the other we still call it a forky. If one side has 3 points and the other has 4 we call it a 3x4.

In the SE mostly and particularly FL we count everything and both sides....

I think we have little deer in NW Florida; they resemble a good-sized German Shepard with long legs. Normal deer is right at 90-100 lbs. A big deer is 125 lbs. A normal doe will run 90lbs or less. The rack on a buck can and often does look like a nest for a soccer ball, with little or no mass at the base.


This goes with the age-old debate about what it takes to kill a deer. In these parts anything that will kill a coyote will kill one of our deer.

Decent timber mule deer buck will go well over 300 lbs standing....I guess anything less is a "little deer".

Pretty close to the truth. The one in the picture in the first post, we never got an actual weight on him as I butchered it myself. When I got him, two of us had to struggle like hell to get him into the back of the truck. Lift the front, tie the head to the tail gate strap, then both lift like hell on the hind end and just manage to get in on the tail gate. We figured he went over 300 live weight.

And a mature nothern Whitetail buck will be close to that. Yes in the southern states Whitetail are the size on dogs, but they are a different breed in the north. But really, who cares? I like Mule deer meat better anyway.
