Whitetail Rut Is Slowing Down

The time of frantic activity in the deer woods has passed.  Most does have been bred and the firearms hunting season has started.  Buck activity will likely be nocturnal as they rest and recover from the efforts of the rut.

I found this young buck at first light not long ago...


Deer can still be seen in thick cover, but you might need a sharp eye to spot them...


Zooming in to 400mm allows a better view of this doe...


Just because the rut is winding down doesn't mean deer will not still be moving, especially at night.  Be careful driving and be safe.
