This is something that many a deer hunter would love to have in front of them. 😉
This very large Mule Deer buck was standing on a slight rise to my east early in the morning. His massive frame and sizeable antlers made him quite easy to pick out of the landscape, even with the sunrise behind it. The shadowy form made for a pretty neat picture.
Mule Deer are quite common across the western half of North America and can be found everywhere from the mountains to the plains. This particular one was out and about on the prairie northeast of Denver, Colorado recently.
