The Whitetail Rut to date has been disappointing. I expected to be posting many pictures of this year's crop of whitetail bucks by now but photographic opportunities have been few and far between. I attribute much of my lack of success to this years extremely heavy acorn crop which is keeping the deer in the woodlands and surrounding mountains. So instead of filling my files with buck photographs I find myself focusing on our feathered friends.
Hopefully my luck with the bucks will change but time is running out with only a little over one week yet to go before rifle deer season will close the curtains on my Pennsylvania buck photography season 2010.
