Leonard and I really do live “where the deer and the antelope play”. These “antelope” of musical fame are actually pronghorn (Antilocapra americanna), not antelope, as they are commonly called. But we all incorrectly call them antelope.
At the Ash Creek Wildlife Refuge across the road from our house, mule deer (Modoc County CA) inhabit the rocky slopes of Pilot Butte throughout the year. In the spring, pronghorn, mostly females, join the mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus) on Pilot Butte. They will drop their fawns in about a month.
The pronghorn and mule deer readily mingle and appear to get along without conflict. Leonard and I enjoy seeing these mammals associate. The words to the “Home on the Range” chorus always seem to run through my mind when watching them.
