This buck was trailing a doe through our backyard yesterday morning.
Many thanks to the Bent Tree homeowner/photographer who let me share these fantastic photos. Yesterday, he saw this 6 point buck chasing does (with no luck). Then, a short time later, the tired buck took a needed rest.
One of the things that amazes me about deer is how long their necks really are.
The topic of the deer restocking program in Georgia was discussed at the June Lake & Wildlife meeting and recently on various BT social media platforms. Click here for a related post from 2012 (the photo below, taken in Bent Tree, is also from 2012). The bottom of that post has a link to a pdf of “Deer Stocking Program in Georgia” which was written in 1975. The deer stocking program continued until 1992.
