Ear notches

I am surprised at how many mule deer I see with notched ears, including this young buck Jim and I encountered today. Theories anyone?

I love seeing mule deer at this time of year. The does look so absolutely feminine, and the swollen-necked bucks so masculine.

Does any group collect and tag mule deer? I ask because it looks like an ID tag was pulled off the male's left ear.
