Hunting, shooting, fishing for Black tail deer

Stalking, Bowhunting, Highseat, Hunting from a Blind

Deep in the wetlands of tropical forest British Columbia and beyond thrives the Colombian black-tailed deer.

Black tail deer, or black tailed deer are the tree-hugging cousin to the open field-loving mule deer. F

eeding on underbrush, young trees, grasses, fruits and other forest and field plants, they cover a wide expansion of land, moving away from cold, snowy climates for the wintertime and going to rut sometime between November and December.

Hunters with a trophy black tailed deer notch in their belt get extra applause for hunting in some of the toughest deer country. With plant life thicker then a twister full of bramble, a good shot on a big buck is hard to come by.

Lucky hunters will find a forest line and wait from a high seat or ground blind for a buck to step out into the field to graze. A true test of patience for a bow or rifle hunter.
