this weekend davis and I went hunting. he built a new stand in the cutover (pines planted for paper/pulp purposes) and i hunted there....i love hunting in there. the deer feel safe and it's so quite.
i saw five different deer, but only got pictures of two.
(valerie- this is what they look like :) )
they are what we call 'last year's deer' (one and 1/2 year old) . they are too little to shoot. if you look between his ears you can see his 'antlers' (click on the picture, then click the back button to come back here)...he's called a spike because they are pretty straight and, well, look like spikes. when referring to the antlers of a whitetail buck , you count the points...a trophy is judged by three things: the number of points, the mass of the antler (how thick they are), and the spread (width)...
