9 Conclusion: I think mule deer are very interesting animals because they can adapt to live in almost any terrain as long as they have food and water. I have seen mule deer many times on my way home from fishing at Cuyamaca Lake and hiking with my dad in the mountains. Sometimes I have seen their hoof prints in the moist sand. front hoof -> <- rear hoof I like how they can blend in so well into their surroundings that you can walk right by them and not even see them.
