Ever wonder why all the deer aren't shot in hunting season. Those that don't hunt might think it would be easy like shooting a cow but they are very good at blending into their surroundings and sneaking away : )

They seem to instinctively head for the spot that provides just the right balance of shadowing and color to mask them, don't they? Good example.

Nice shot (No pun intended!)

Hunting season, they all come up to our place and get fed on chicken scratch. We had 6 here last night. Including a couple of pregnant doe's.

Although I bow hunt I very seldom shoot anything except with the camera : ) I just enjoy being out in the woods. We have a lot of them bedding down in our yard and stealing blackoil from the birds. I took this through our window, not good technically but it shows you our adopted family this winter since the food is scarce in NY this year.

I have thousands of shots of deer including the young ones like this one right after it was born behind the house in the cornfield : ) I used the 560 on this one as I passed by. I didn't hang around long or the mother would have been quite upset.

NY, although with the taxes I may not be here much longer. Our area Goshen, is overrun with deer or for that matter all wildlife. This was a very tough winter on them.

I can bet that I remember when I was in WY and it got -40 it was tough on the Antelope then they actually were frozen to the ground as they would lay to keep warm which would melt the snow and as the melt refroze they got trapped as well.. now days they have funds to help the animals in the times of need as well with feed and warm bedding of straw etc...
