Columbian Black-tailed Deer (Odocoileau hemionus columbianus) are a smaller sub-species of the Common Mule Deer and are common throughout the central and southern BC coast regon. They have a close cousin, the Sitka Black-tailed Deer, that resides on the northern BC coast and was introduced on to Haida Guaii, were, due to no natural predator, numbers have soared. This young male was heading off into the bush when I spotted him from a boat I was travelling on last summer along the coast. In the winter, old growth forest is a critical shelter for Black-tailed Deer, giving protection from snow and providing food in the form of lichen that grows on the trees.
