Right Now In The Deer Woods

Simple! That describes what the deer we see (and don’t) experience in the Deer Woods. It is a much simpler place than what we people experience.

All of us have much more complicated issues going on in our lives than deer do.

This morning, right after daylight, the first thing I saw was was 4 wild hogs rooting in a growing wheat field 100 yards from me. Three were mature adult hogs of good size. The 4th hog was a black boar that was double their size. He was “Big” but not as big as the particular black boar I see almost every morning between 7:00 and 8:00. (He did a no-show this morning.)

During the first hour after sunrise I had watched 11 whitetail deer that were browsing and doing deer stuff. The closest were 45 yards and the furthest were over a hundred yards off.

Here is a picture of one of the closer ones. a young buck that was close enough I could use my iPhone.
