From Velvet through the Rut

August 10th I photographed this buck as he bounded away when a coyote trotted past



Bumping into him again October 25th I photographed him extensively.  This shot captures his unique antler configuration.

Meeting up with him again November 18th I found it interesting to see how he had broken his antlers.  Although his antlers are broken his spirit wasn't for he was pushing does like he was the biggest baddest buck in the meadow.
