20131112 033 SERIES - White-tailed Deer.jpg

Ottawa West

Two images of a third Buck seen on this date. We found this Buck laying down in the thick bush, near the edge of a swamp. A smallish Doe was grazing at the edge of the swamp. Suddenly the "BOSS" Buck came along and chased off this interloper. This buck is a nine or ten pointer, but is a bit smaller that the "BOSS"

Top Image: The Buck looking back, keeping an eye on the bigger Buck.

A closeup of this Buck. Note that the end of its right rack is broken. Possibly from a fight with an other Buck, perhaps the BOSS. There was no evidence of inflicted wounds on any of the three Bucks seen, however. Therefor, it may just have gotten tangled in the dense bush or perhaps it ran into a big branch or a tree during a chase.
