Trail Cam Photos

The past few days were have had some interesting photos on our trail camera.  Gun hunting season ended in Wisconsin a couple weeks ago.  We were happy to see that the deer that have been coming to our feeder all year had lived.  The buck doesn't come everyday but we saw him from a photo during the night.  His antlers were in tact and he was alone.  The next night he showed up with a doe.  Half of his antler was hanging down.  It appeared that he was shedding his rack already.  I researched it and found out that after the rut (male chasing the female to mate), the buck will shed his antlers.  They will grow back again in the spring.  The size of the rack does not show the age of the animal, but its nutrition and general health.
