Deer Rut Is On

Monday, October 29, 2012 3:01 PM | Anonymous member

Today I had the privilege of watching a buck and doe white-tailed deer throw caution to the wind as they cavorted back and forth across a hill top at 2 pm. I could hear the buck grunting as he raced around like a border collie herding the doe back and forth. The cool and calm weather coupled with a clear sky seems to have given every creature the desire to get out and enjoy the day. I hope you get to enjoy some of this beautiful weather this week.
