      1. They come out of the woodwork (literally) this time of year. Rut time! I spooked a 3-pt. at the river the other day. Like you, we’ve seen the does/fawns all summer. I wonder how many will make it through this next month…

        1. Even during rutting season, we haven’t seen them. This guy might not make it. He’s injured. If you look at his right front leg in the photo, you can see it’s swollen. He was limping when I first saw him, but something spooked him and he managed to run/bound into the meadow to hide. If he lives in the woods across the road (probably — they all seem to come from there), he isn’t likely to survive hunting season.
          Whenever I see an injured animal (and I include humans in that category), I often wish I had a super power, one that allowed me to stare at them and cure or fix them. A laser beam would shoot out of my eyes and do the healing. (Silliness!) I don’t suppose it would be a good super power to have, though, because I’d want to go around fixing everything and that’s not really the way of things, is it? We learn from pain, and I suppose injured bucks do, too. What they learn, I don’t know. I haven’t yet learned to speak the language of deer.
