Deer Tracks

Deer tracks


White-tailed Deer breed October-November.  It's a good time of year to notice small trees that bucks have rubbed the bark off of to mark territory and polish antlers.  Also look for scrapes on the ground where males have scraped back the leaf litter to expose the soil with their hooves.
