This is a local buck that lives a very cushy summer life, soon he will shed that velvet and transform into a rutting beast.

I'm sure that once that velvet comes off he will be raring to go, Terry! What a beautiful head and antlers on this impressive buck and a lovely capture with the light filtering through the foliage behind.

That is one beautiful deer. I agree he must be a real beast during rutting season.

Love the low angle and head on view. Exceptional buck well captured.
