I saw six White-tailed Deer on the edge of Carpenter’s Prairie
near my home one evening. Three of them “high-tailed” it into
the woods behind them while three of them stayed to “check me out.”
One young buck started stepping towards me. He’d move a few
feet, stop, look me over, then move a few feet more towards me and
repeat the same process a couple of more times. All at once he
“snorted” once, turned around very quickly and the three of them
“high-tailed” into the woods. How fun!! I love moments like this!! :o)
The image isn’t very “high quality” because it was getting dark,
but I wanted to share my experience with you.
