This deer on the left has his second set of antlers forming. Last year he was a spike and I probably should have eleminated him then.
This deer with his first set of antlers will probably be taken out of the herd.

Here are three bucks all lined up at the trough. They are all buddies this time of the year and hang out together in groups. In the fall during the rut they get all territorial and mark out their claim by making scrapes and leaving their calling cards on the ground and the brush overhead.

This doe, number 22, will have plenty of milk for her fawns. The fawns will have to keep hidden out for a month or so to avoid the capture by coyotes and bobcats. Many times people come upon fawns they think are orphans when really they are just hidden by their mothers who return only to nurse them three or four times a day.
