It was the second weekend of deer hunting season in Minnesota. My brothers and nephews are deer hunters. They would have been very jealous to see what was resting in our next-door neighbors’ backyard this morning. I tried to sneak up behind the bushes and catch a shot (photo) of him as he rested. He was very alert and didn’t appreciate my interruption. He got up right away and kept a cautious look towards me.
My brothers hunted at my Mom’s house this weekend and went home empty-handed. I imagine this buck has been enjoying city living protected from all the hunters.
