I just love the way the deer families take care of the youngsters!
Six weeks later!
The deer started coming in earlier this year, including several Bucks new to us. Some aren't very mature, but their antlers indicate more age. This appears to be the buck in velvet in the prior picture taken Aug 28th.
Close-ups help to see the antler formation. He would be what I call a seven point.
Another young buck
This four point has been coming with the five point for a while now.
Our two pals
They are generally together, and get along very well. They do spar sometimes, but I think they are playing or practicing.
The four point
The deer have been around at least twice a day, but I haven't taken many pictures being preoccupied with the upcoming election.
One of the Does
We have many Does and fawns in our herd.
A three point?
We only saw this little one a couple of times.
I just wish the country (USA) would feel the same.
A new four (five?) point buck.
This guy is much larger and more muscular, with wide spread antlers. I would say he is more mature, even though he doesn't have many points.
...of the four/five point in the previous picture.
