I got this in an email yesterday, and I just had to share. We are trying to track down where this was taken. My guess is somewhere in the midwest. I was going to email this to some of you who I know emails for, but decided it was too good not to share with everyone!
My husband just wishes this would happen in our yard. He hasn't had much luck bow hunting this year : (
Yeah, if it's during the rut (mating season/winter in the midwest), the boys get really stupid! Hehehe, not much different from humans, huh? I'm guessing since there are 5 bucks and one doe, it was taken during the rut. The bucks tend to stick together the first part of rut, then disperse for the rest of the year. I'm pretty sure that's how it is anyways!
I looked like a Subaru commercial on my daily drive to work. You know the one, where the rocks are falling down, and then the tree and the animals on the road. First on the drive yesterday was a lovely fox, missed him. Next was 4 deer, drove right between 2. Then was the coyote. Miss it too, but need to be defibbed by the time I arrived at work. LOL It will just be so much more fun driving over the pass when it is snowy and icey. NOT!

Husky that is a great picture!! My husband was drooling lol. They are so gorgeous!! The few we see around our house are very very small the two I saw yesterday morning at first I thought they were large dogs, no horns, Hubby said they were probably this years babies.
Thanks again for posting that picture. What a great shot.
neat picture husky. i live in the midwest and i believe you have that backwards (but I may be the backwards one this morning.....way too much caffine going on) The bucks do not stick together during rut, they disperse then get back to the "herd" the rest of the year. At least that is what I thought.
Cool though. Had to start my own little e-mail chain going on with that one here at work today!
I commonly see them around houses. We live in their habitat so its only natural. I remember last year a doe and her fawn would sleep in one of my in laws spare dog kennels. We have Antelope and Deer near our house, also geese and ducks on the lake and pheasants running throough the fields. I almost got a pheasant from the kitchen window. I remember my friend thought I was crazy, they saw the spent shells on the counter, lol. We have a mama fox too. She is so cute, she had her whole family in a pile of brush and logs. She seems to have babies every year.
Unfortunately we have coyotes of course too.
My husband needs a new scope so he can get out. Of course he always wants the most expensive anything so....I'd rather not spend a big chunk of change on one.
Love your response, weim!! I was going to suggest they invest in a trampoline!!! Unfortunately, in my long trip to my parent's house, I saw about three bucks, and they were all dead. That's one of the clues (for me) that it's rut season! The bucks become too stupid to dodge traffic! lol
i have seen so many deer here in wisconsin on the roads...dead of course and I almost took out three bucks the other day on the way to work...what is gross around here is that people get so much buck fever that they actually cut off the heads or the antlers. so if you see one missing a head along the road you can assume it was a big buck! SICK!!!
Prime example of the male species, they get stupid when it comes to getting any!
Oddly enough, I've seen people take the heads off does, too. I knew she was a doe because I had seen her shortly after she was hit. A couple days later, her head was gone. It happened again on that same stretch a few weeks later. Never figured it out why they would want the head of a decaying doe.
