White-tailed deer are amazing animals and they have adapted to live almost anywhere in the United States, from rurual to urban areas and anywhere in between. When it comes to wildlife management, deer have no problem increasing in numbers. In fact, the most important thing we can do is keep deer populations in check with their available habitat through regulated hunting. But that’s an article for another day.
With recent advances in technology, mostly motion-sensitive cameras commonly referred to as game cameras, humans can keep a close eye on what deer are doing out there in the woods. These simple game cameras are triggered by movement and then activate to take a photo. It really is a simple process, but the exciting part as the camera’s owner is never knowing what you will see until the pictures are downloaded.
These pictures are of a nice white-tailed buck that was captured in some game camera photos in an interesting situation, to say the least! In fact, this is a middle-aged buck (probably 3.5 to 4.5 years old) with a nice set of antlers. I’m not sure how he got that bucked pinned between his antlers, but it’s there nonetheless. Like I said, deer are amazing, but some of the things they get into amaze me, as well!
