The Eight-Point Buck
This lovely and magnificent-looking creature had the misfortune of passing in sight of my husband's muzzleloader on Saturday. He is now hanging in the butcher's freezer.
Fortunately I was able to grab a few shots of him through the window before my husband saw him.
I would much rather shoot deer with a camera than with a gun, though I know hunting is necessary to keep the population down. We are overrun with deer here on the farm and they do a number on the crop fields every year.
But still, the vision of him bounding along the woodland path is more dear to me than his antlers on the garage wall.
