Counting the number of paws on the ground I'd say he was on the move!

That there is one fully mature, dominant buck, not a pencil-necked "teenage" wannabe. Well done!

Thanks Tom
He is the infamous "Petey" and is estimated to be 9-1/2 years old. Time for you to make another trip back to the Smokies :-)

Petey????!!!!!
WOW! I can't believe he is still alive!

He was a fully mature buck when I was there in 2010. Do you think it's possible that he is actually 10 1/2 years old now?

In 2010, he had a thick neck and a deeply muscled chest. Such well developed musculature is rare in a 4 1/2 year old buck, but it is possible.

He was dominant over the other large bucks (except for two who were obviously old and studly). I actually saw him fight - and beat - an huge, old, dominant buck. Usually 4 1/2 year olds are not dominant, as they have yet to develop the neck and chest musculature that it takes to hold one's own in a fight. So I would be somewhat surprised if he were really only 9 1/2 now....but of course I could be wrong about that.

I would really like to get back there. But it kills me that whenever it snows they close the roads to the place. You wait all year to photograph deer in fresh snow, then when it finally does snow they shut you out. That was really frustrating, and it has kept me from returning to the Cove.

Funny story... I was on a alaskan fishing trip about 10 years ago and the weather turned rough so we hiked just into a treeline until our guide came to pick us up. There was a huge kodiak bear about 100 yards out I had my small kodak point and shoot. It kept coming closer and closer,and closer we were debating on taking off and running so we froze scared thinking it would chase us (3) of us.when we dipped into the woods we didnt know it was basically an island of trees in the middle of a field. We were all facing the Bear when....
A HUGE female Moose stuck her head over in the bushes behind us being curious she blew her HUGE nostrils and all three of us went screaming like 3 little girls in four different directions
The bear raised up on his back legs to get a better look and I swear he was laughing at us!

The Fox ran too fast, so I had to settle for the Moose! He was in no hurry to go anywhere in the fog!

Thanks Jeff! I would like to think that someday I will get a photo of a Fox! Won't be as good as yours, but I can live with that!
