When I showed the photo to my wife she said something about the "lady" deer probably weren't going to be very accepting of him, lol. Possibly right, as that is commonly thought to be true and probably is usually, but I have learned there's always exceptions to the rules. This picture was taken the day it was posted or maybe the day before and he was still in velvet, but I'm sure antler growth was done for the year. All the normal bucks were out of velvet about 3-5 weeks before. He is a young buck, likely born early in the birthing season of last year.
