I went looking for rutting deer this morning, but only found this big man.

He was more interested in eating grass,

and posing.

And why not.


  1. W.O.W.!!! that's one heckuva rack! i'd have such a headache!

  2. What a beauty!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  3. Wouldn't you be happy with those antlers, wow, he is beautiful.

  4. Hi Keith....one fellar I wouldn't want to be coming at me with that rack !!
    He is a real beauty ..awesome shots!!

  5. Yea, he's a fine set of antlers Theresa.

    Thanks Gary.

    Thanks Bob. He's a fine old gentleman.

    Thanks Grace. Yea, I gave him plenty of space, just in case. lol

  6. Can you imagine running through a thick forest with that head gear? He looks to be in the 'rut' where are the women?

  7. He's certainly got a fine set Dale.
    I think all the girls were way off in the park, looking pretty lol

  8. Why not, indeed! When you look as good as that, you have to pose!

  9. Thanks John. He knew he was special.
