Velvet bucks and does with fawns have been caught on a lot of cameras this summer. We’ve recieved a lot of summertime deer photos and enjoy them all. This week a portion of those photos are featured (the rest to come soon).

The first photo is a nice portrait of a doe in the woods at Hickory Run State Park. Patty Horn snapped the photo in late June. The next photo is described as a “deer family” by Rick Voelker, whose trail camera captured this image of a doe, fawn and a young buck in Bear Creek Township. Tom Svetz of Nanticoke set up a trail camera at Silver Lake Farms in Shickshinny and sent in photo of a rapidly growing fawn nursing and a group of bucks. Notice the lopsided antler growth of the buck in the back.

Finally, Camille Daniels captured a nice close-up of a pair of fawns outside of Mountain Top. Daniels shot the picture on July 8 and the fawns are growing right on schedule.

Check back next week for more summertime deer photos.

Capture anything interesting on your handheld or trail camera? A nice buck, bear, coyote or anything unique? We’d love to see it. Each week, we’ll run photos from a reader’s trail camera on the Sunday Outdoors page. Email your photo, along with date and area it was taken (township is fine), and any other details to tvenesky@timesleader.com.
