"WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING"

Mule Deer - 7 Photos

 

It appears that mating season for Mule Deer is at its end. 

 

The does have now gone back to relaxed grazing & the large stags have disappeared or at the very least, have retired to the woods for some rest, relaxation & building up on calories to see them through the Winter.

 

But for the younger bucks, there is still some mock fighting or jousting to be had - ahh youth! On this particular morning, both a two year old (Photo #1) and a three year old (Photo #2 & Photo #3) (ages approximate from their antler size), thought they would try to entice a resting stag into some engagement but to give this wonderful stag his due, he just couldn't be bothered or was just too tired to stand to meet the challenge. So he just pushed back in a resting position and then retired for the morning (Photo #4)

 

So when the adults won't play silly games, let's have some play fighting between the younger generations (Photo #5, Photo #6, Photo #7)
