These 3 Mule Deer Bucks caught in a late twilight Silhouette were up watching the full moon rising the other night with me. They were ridge lined and I was able to maneuver way below them about 200 yards out and Click….
I know this boys club and it’s members pretty well. . There is a 2.5 year old on the right, a 3.5 year old on the left and a 4.5 year old in the center. It’s all about the antlers lol. These boys grew up together in the same group and I’ve watched them all grow up from fawns. They are pretty used to me being around but they are still quite wild. They don’t come down to greet me you might say but I can get pretty close if the conditions are right…..
Next year the bigger of the three will probably be a serious challenge for the other itinerate bucks that wander through. There is a whole little deer melodrama playing out pretty much all year but you really have to watch and pay attention to see it happening.
