Very nice shots of a good sized buck. Cades Cove, another favorite place of mine for wildlife, especially the Whitetail Deer. Well done.

Wonderful shots. You can see he's in full rut with the tarsal glands soaked and his mouth open tasting the wind. Somewhere, there was a doe that was very glad you had his attention. ha, ha.


Shoot first and ask questions later.

Those are some really nice photos of a really good buck. It looks like you got down low for a better POV. Nice work!

That must be great! I would love to be that close to such a great whitetail spot.

You must know all of the Cove's bucks pretty well. Is "Petey" still alive? Were you able to shoot him at all this year? How about the campground buck? Is he still as habituated as he was a couple years ago?

"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Tom - Petey is doing well, just getting older like all of us. He is "only" an 8 pointer this year. But he did have a couple of gals with him during the rut so that part is good. He hangs out on the ridge between the Primitive Baptist Church and Hyatt Lane mostly. The campground buck has moved to the new horse pasture area on Sparks Lane and seems to not be quite as habituated as in years past .... his new thing is to crawl under the fences instead of jumping them!

And I would love to be able to live close enough to those great pheasant and grouse image areas from which you manage so many superb images

Here's a not great image of Petey from the end of November

Bob,
Petey does indeed look great! From the way he looks in that shot, is is certainly not lacking for testosterone . . . or attitude, for that matter. Thanks for updating me!
