With my better camera, I carefully left the house, down a path and behind a tree without being noticed.
Peeping through the foliage, I could see another deer. After a few minutes, this deer stepped out into the open. It was a slightly smaller deer with a smaller seven point rack, not nearly as impressive as the last buck, but good for a photo shoot.
He looked directly at me, however I have learned that if you don't move a muscle, they can't see you.
This buck must have thought that he was the object of a photo shoot for GQ Magazine because he gave me some great poses.
You may ask, why are deer coming to this spot in the woods? Actually, I have a salt block that's just below the foliage. You can't see in the photos. The salt draws the deer in like flies to honey. I use it to bring the deer in so I can take a few photos. Interesting, I have found that small creatures like the salt, too. When inspecting the block, I have noticed tiny scratches on the sides which appeared to come from mice.
Here's the last photo, however while writing this blog article, I looked back out the window and another buck was standing near the salt box. This new buck is the largest that I have seen near the salt block. I named him Mr. Buck and can't wait to put his photo in a future blog. Stay tuned.....
