Nature is a bitch.. Over 120 mule deer fell to their death during migration while trying to traverse a steep ice covered pass.
I know we have a lot of mule deer hunters out there, and this is unfortunate to see. From reading other people’s stories about this spot in the eastern sierras there are a lot of deer killed year after year trying to make it to the winter range.
