Just got back from a 5 km Kayak Paddle down the lake and back with my grand daughter between my leg's and guess who is pretty much standing on the deck at home.


Standing on the edge of the cut grass. Starting to look a little better after a very hard winter. I never feed Deer but I'm sorry I didn't this last year. He really could have used it.

Ya he does doesn't he John, he's tiny to. I haven't seen the little female I shot all winter, hope the wolve's are not the reason for that. I hear them about 100 yards from the house just about every night.

Nice shot. I'll bet your granddaughter got a kick out of seeing him. If he stays close by, it will be interesting to see what his rack will look like after the hard winter.

Nice image! He is quite a bit behind the antler growth we have here(already out past the ears and splitting G3's). Looks like you have studio lighting set up in your yard.

ya your right Ron, he like it right close by the house. Although I had the wolves make a kill in my back yard in the middle of the night years ago

Yes everything is way behind this year. Including the black fly and mosketo's !! There nuts right now. I was shooting a pair of Loon's tonight with chick that is just hatched. Some times I wish the yard was lit like a studio but no just the sun. I don't use a flash either.

Nice one Jeff! Doesn't look too worried about you, with all the wolves around, maybe he knows he's protected by you :)

Thanks Cheryl, you would not believe this buck. I have a video that shows just how use to me he is but I'm in the Park and have to run Internet off my phone so won't be uploading right now.

Ron you would have had a grin from ear to ear today, Bren and I spent the day in the kayak's, just a super day. Your right about the bug's, normally they would be done but with winter lasting so long and not getting 90* temps in the beginning of June

With the wolves so close and every night is there any chance to get a shot (photograph) of them? I drive 8 hours to Yellowstone Park to photograph the wolves and have yet to hear them "sing'. Sometimes we just don't know how lucky we are. Nice shot and I hope he makes it through the Fall.
