Unusual Sighting

This morning, on the way to get a newspaper, I spotted three deer in a neighbor’s yard. At first, I thought it was a buck and two does. He looked to be about an eight-point. They turned and ran a short distance then turned back to look at my vehicle as I drove past slowly.

It was three bucks together. Beside the eight-point, there was a four-point and a spike (yearling buck with only single point, unbranched antlers). The quality of the light had rendered the smaller bucks’ antlers nearly invisible at first.

At this time of year, seeing bucks together and not fighting for a harem is a rare sight indeed. They made quite an impressive sight.
