Mule Deer Buck in SagebrushSeptember 26, 2011
26 Flares 26 Flares ×
A mule deer buck with a bit of remaining velvet on its antlers stands in sagebrush in Grand Teton National Park.
While out trying to find a visual on Grizzly Bear #610, I was out on a remote dirt road in Grand Teton National Park shortly after sunrise. While I never did find her that day, I did stumble across a mule deer with a small bit of velvet left on its antlers. I turned my car off and spent a few minutes photographing him since he didn’t seem to mind my presence. When he went across the road and toward the trees, I went ahead farther and came back around only to discover about six or seven more coming out following him.
It was no grizzly bear encounter, but it certainly made my morning!
