It's mating season for our local Black-tailed Deer - yes, the rut is here

Bucks have been reappearing on the Mendonoma Coast and they have one thing on their minds. Bucks have been seen locking antlers over a particularly attractive Doe. It's the time of year to give these big Bucks a wide berth.

Recently Ben Angwin photographed a young Buck in the grasses at Gualala Point Regional Park.

 Gualala Point Rergional Park is a favorite of mine. Rick and I enjoy taking our golden retriever, Huckleberry, there for a walk. Below is a photo I took from the bluff trail on Thursday. Beautiful, wouldn't you agree?
Thanks to Ben Angwin for allowing me to share his photo with you here.
