First Love

There is an old saying about never forgetting ones first love.  I don't know if the same thought can be applied to deer, but I enjoyed this young buck showing his exuberance and vitality as he experienced his first pangs of "love" during the rut.  It all began with a whiff of female pheromones near a licking branch and scrape...





Even though there were no does in sight, he could not control his hormonal reaction to the intoxicating scent...


 


If the first doe is not interested...
 
 
There are plenty more to pursue...
 
 
This is a wonderful time of the year to be outdoors.
