Artist's Description

A Black-tailed deer caught cleaning himself at North West Trek in Eatonville, WA.

The Black-tailed deer, or Blacktail deer, (Odocoileus hemionus columbianus) is a subspecies of the Mule Deer found in western North America, specifically in the Pacific Northwest region.
Black-tailed deer once lived at least as far east as Wyoming. In Francis Parkman’s The Oregon Trail, an eyewitness account of his 1846 trek across the early West, while within a two-days ride from Fort Laramie, Parkman writes of shooting what he believes to be an elk, only to discover that he has killed a Black-tailed Deer.
The Black-tailed deer is currently common in northern California, western Oregon, Washington, in coastal and interior British Columbia, and north into the Alaskan panhandle. There remains confusion, however, over its proper classification. It is a popular game animal.
