I'm still learning.....are these mule or white tails?

Sorry, not a good picture, it was getting dark.

Very white, white tail deer. Actually the white showing on their tail is a danger flag to all other deer in area, such as a red flag is to us. Normally the only time it is displayed is when the deer is nervous or feels threatened. jim

Thank you Jim!
Question:
You can see the center picture head of the deer looks more
of a mule, [I mean horse/dunkey mule] LOL
Is it because they are related to mule deer, or is it why
the mule deer got its name?

>>Does have a different looking head for some strange reasonDoesn't it!

Some weeks ago when checking on a road kill, where a I believe a Coyote was feeding on, I couldn't believe what I'm seeing, a head like a donkey, just like these guys!
A little time before, shot this pic and I was about 99% sure it was white tail.....that's why I got confused!

You can see that the head is smaller and looking like a deer.

I think the difference is that of age. An older deer (especially bucks) tend to have a larger more elongated head compared to that of a yearling.
