In rut

During our evening drive, one square mile, just before sunset, we have observed different deer behavior. Some groups seem to be always together, their herd is established and their numbers do not change. This years fawns are wary but curious, the late fawns still have their spots.

Sunday night we observed two bucks fighting it out. It was strange a herd of about eight deer were in the bean field, and at the edge of the field two bucks were left in the dust when the others ran for toward the woods. Apparently the hormones were in control.
