Bucks be Here!

Three Bucks about to Depart from our Yard
You may remember that back in June I posted about a newborn fawn who was nestled in some tall grass in our yard for the day.  If you missed that post you can read it at A Sweet Addition to Our Neighborhood. We've not seen the fawn again and suspect Mom moved her to a more remote location.
The 2 Point Buck

This week it was the bucks turn to visit. One two-pointer and two three-pointer bucks roamed about our yard nibbling on our wild berries, the stalks from our Hosta flowers, new shoots of grass, and just about anything else that looked yummy. My husband and I noted how they did not mind us being in the windows watching them.  Much more at ease than the doe normally is when she wanders through.  

The Large of the 3 Point Bucks
Since they were clearly roaming about as a group it was obvious it is not yet breeding time, so no competition just yet.

Their sizes varied with one very frail looking 3 point and one larger, healthier 3 point.  The third deer, which we think is a 2 point (although there may have been a hint of a third point) was about the same size as the larger 3 point.  There were twins born in our area a few years ago, so we believe they must be the two 3-point bucks.
The Smallest Buck - But a 3 Point

I wanted to share my photos of these friendly bucks. Enjoy! And don't be surprised if you find them in a painting at some time in the future.

  1. On our drive home from Prescott Az. we saw dear crossing the road... just out for a stroll :)

    1. We used to live in Arizona and I definitely remember that happening on that strip of road. Always a nice sight, as long as they are not too close to the cars.


I look forward to hearing from you. - April
