Deer season is many things to many people; a time to get together with friends and family, a time to enjoy camp life, and a time to make memories. For some, deer season is more about going to camp and enjoying camp life than the actual hunt; while for others the pursuit of the deer is first and foremost.
For me the deer season marks the end; the end of my whitetail rut photography for the year. With hunters in the woods the deer's movement patterns change drastically. Instead of the bucks spending their time in search of does they will be using every tool in their bag of tricks to save their skin. And most of the bucks carrying legal antlers will be dead by the time the two week season ends.
With a new crop of fawns already beginning to grow in their mothers bellies the cycle of life contines even as the season of the harvest begins.
