OL’s Hunting, Editor Andrew McKean, shot this northeastern Montana buck on the last day of the season. Is it actually a cross between a mule deer and a whitetail?

It’s fitting, somehow. After logging 32 days in blind, tree stand, irrigation ditch or hunkered down on the edge of an alfalfa field since early September. After passing on hundreds of bucks. After second-guessing on my decision to let some of these deer walk. After being consumed with whitetails, I finally punched my Montana deer tag last evening, in the final hours of the 2010 hunting season.
