Muley Bucks (20140804) An unprecedented third supplemental on the same day
Well here it is, yet another supplemental post of the Holiday Monday trip out with Kerri to the south of the province. We had been finding the odd deer here and there and even an occasional doe with a fawn. We had taken some shots of a trio of bucks early but the conditions were far from ideal. We then happened upon this beaut. While not in the best light he would be the highest "scoring" likely of any buck we found today. To find the trophy's you have towait for the bucks with antlers that extend out passed their ears.
This fella is already there and still has at least 4 to 6 more weeks of adding length. This is a large antlered Muley. We had just returned our eyes to the road when 5 or 6 more backelors appeared from below and crossed the road. This is the largest of that group, and while he loos impressive he is only a 3x4 and lacks the symetry and sheer size of the first. Kerry has a great shot of him jumping the fence her Flicker page.
