About the Mexican "Texanus" Whitetail Deer
Scientific Name: Odocoileus virginianus texanus
Texas and Mexico whitetails are a diverse subspecies, easily broken into three distinct groups (four including Carmen Mountain whitetails found in southwest Texas). The first group of Texas whitetails is found on the Gulf prairies and oak savannahs of South Texas, the second the Edwards Plateau in the heart of Texas, and the third on the south-central plains surrounding Texas’ Panhandle region (including eastern New Mexico and Colorado and western Kansas and Oklahoma). South Texas whitetails, which often range into the Mexican state of Coahuila, are renowned for their large antlers, further accentuated by relatively small bodies exhibited by these white-tailed deer. They thrive in the mesquite and prickly-pear oceans, coastal prairies, and oak savannahs of the region. The Edwards Plateau is several hundred miles across and occupies the center of the Lone Star State, harboring dense deer densities often topping 40 deer per square mile. Body and antler size of Edwards Plateau whitetails are typically smaller in direct comparison to southern and northern Texas herds. Finally, South Plain’s whitetails, once thinly distributed, have begun to thrive and spread in the agricultural and ranching areas of the Texas Panhandle and surrounding states, thanks largely to CRP set-asides and the encroachment of invading mesquite and blueberry juniper brush to provide secure escape cover.
