You make think this question is stupid, but I've always wondered, Why do Mule Deer have short brow tines? Everyone who shoots a Mathews should know the REEZEN :lol: :lol: :lol:

I heard long ago a whitetail told a mule deer with respect to brown tine growth, "Catch us if you Can..."

and now you know, the rest of the story....

I hope you'll do some research and let us know what you learn. Maybe check one of the mule deer forums, they might know. This is a trait that has been around a long time but I have no idea why. Good question.

There's also many cases where mule deer don't have brow tines at all.

The mule deer in the middle is derfinitly the norrowest and has the longest brow tines, a mulie and whitetail with the same score, 90% of the time the mulie will be wider. I'd geuss it is just genitics. :?

Noses or ears? Either way, I think it is courageous of you to admit it. Being able to talk about your own shortcomings is theraputic! :D
