Default Last of the Velvet

Got lucky and got to watch this Buck rubbing off his velvet on a small tree. Never have seen a Buck with red antlers.
Sorry about the IQ not the best conditions.

Good catch. Do you get your deer shots from a blind?

Thank you. My house is surrounded by woods and fields and I just wander around and see what I can find.

I know that what deers do to scrape off the velvet, but I have never seen one actually doing it. Thanks for sharing!
