Deer are most active in the fall, especially during the rut in November. But this summer, there’s been no shortage of deer activity as we’ve received a lot of photos from readers. In this week’s group of photos, we have deer in a hayfield, on a golf course and in a backyard. There are beautiful velvet bucks, a few fawns and one very fat doe.
The first photo shows two generations — a nice eight-point buck with a young fawn who both found something interesting next to a stump. Bill Runner captured the photo of a doe and two fawns while he was golfing recently on the fourth hole at the Newberry Golf Course.
Janel Hahenbaugh of Wilkes-Barre spotted a group of deer feeding in a hayfield in Hunlock Creek. Gary Cobb snapped this nice closeup of a small fawn exploring its new world, while Walter Mitchell caught this young buck exploring his backyard in Bear Creek Village.
Finally, Kathleen Vino took this picture of a robust doe along Manor Drive in Shavertown. It’s been eating well this summer.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
