Blacktail Deer

I apologize for the poor contrast. I guess they're supposed to blend into their environment, right? This guy was sneaking around an apple tree. Best I can tell, he's just a "forkie", but LORD what forks!

Sneaking along...pretending I'm not there.

He's got wind of me.  He'll be gone pretty quick!

He's onto me now. Won't be long before he bolts for the thick stuff.

Don't you just love when a whole field comes alive, just as you put the rifle down?

Look at the jaws full of dinner. More like a chipmunk than a deer!

An argument against scent control?

Go back.
