Rut Is In Full Swing

I can't remember a rut with more activity than the one going on now.  Bucks are chasing does with abandon and many nice bucks that have not been seen before are showing themselves.  I hope you enjoy the show...



The object of his affection....







 
The next photo is a piebald button buck...

 
 
This buck is visiting a "licking branch"...

 

 
 
I will leave you with two new photos of the double drop tine buck.  Probably the largest buck in Frederick County...
 


Thanks for visiting, and be careful driving while the rut is on.

  2. Majsan,
    Thank you, I enjoy watching deer year round, but the rut is a special time. Many large bucks that are rarely seen come out of hiding when the rut is on.
