Deer Season

With the coming of Fall and the trees changing colors, deer season is inevitable. In Amador County, this year, it begins on September 25th and ends on Halloween. You all know I'm not a hunter, so this is just a report and a photo op.

A tree that I didn't know was on the property.

Generally when the first shot of deer season occurs, you don't see a deer (male or female) until weeks after the end of the season. They just seem to know. Last night, I had the pleasure of a couple of the boys from the neighborhood stoping by for a photo op. Here's what I gathered from the way they sauntered across my front yard. I was standing on the porch when I took these pictures.
La Te Da, not a care in the world.
Hey, who are you? Are you a threat to me?
Nope, let's keep going. La Te Da.
Guess they felt safe enough even though they weren't more than about 100 ft from me.
Last Friday when I was up at Tamarack Lake, I ran across a couple of deer hunters. they asked if I'd seen any deer? "Sure, in my front yard, all the time". Wouldn't tell them where I lived, though.
Till next time.


  1. Great pics, Mark. Pretty lucky!

  2. I love "finding" new things. It is like the first time you fish your favorite trout stream at the beginning of the season... there is always something new.
