Mule deer are common in Crestone, and have have been for thousands of years. People have generally not lived in or near Crestone other than in the fall for most of its history due to the swarms of mosquitos and other biting flies which blow in on the prevailing winds from the southwest. Care should be taken to not "corner" deer as they may strike out with their hooves if they feel threatened. This can happen at night if you have apple trees and your yard is open to deer.
