Skywatch: Rutting Sky



At the outset of a recent Shenandoah National Park visit a good whitetail buck situated himself perfectly against the early morning sky.

I have been focusing upon the whitetail rut for the past three weeks. Soon it will pass but the images and memories of another great season will live on.

Lovely buck..or I guess I should say handsome buck..I was wondering if the rut will be over soon as I think the chance of hitting deer goes down significantly.. You are too far away from western NY...Michelle
