Every once and awhile when you’re taking deer pictures you get lucky and these pictures came from being in the right place, at the right time and being lucky. A young buck came in view and soon a dandy 8-point walked up. He looks a little thin, the summer heat is taking some weight off him.
I guess he wanted to be sure I got his picture because he walked over and stopped just right, and looked around the area.
As he slowly looked around I zoomed in tighter on him to get a closer look at his fine new headwear.
He wasn’t around long and walked off to the south.
At this point there is still at least a month of antler growing. This buck’s main beams should get longer as will his tines. And the verdict is not in on how many points he will wind up with. It’s possible that as the main beam lengthens a new point or two could pop up.
We’ll keep watching and find out.
