The sixth deer is hiding behind the dead pine branch. The pine branch is one that broke off of a big white pine that's growing along my driveway last fall, I dragged it out into the field.

that's what I first saw then started questioning myself because branch and deer are the same color..I look for lines that are not natural to the woods like a drooping belly or legs are sticks crossing....

Here's a cropped/ zoomed in version, you can see the deer's back. EDIT: I had to go back and get the original high resolution version for the zoom in, but I think I grabbed the next image in the 5 photo burst and the hidden deer and the deer standing front took a partial step forward.

Here's a screen capture from a video a few moments before the 5 photos. I'm going to have to upload some of the videos, the fawns are running around chasing each other looking all cute.

Kraig, that's what I saw was the rump curve.I'm not losing it yet ??I get pretty intense about venison,to me it's a food source. (I have "harvested" over 150 deer in my years ).I don't buy beef but some pork and chicken and catch enough gills to have once a week...Kids and grandkids grown up now but estimate having furnished about 7500 lbs of meat to the family.....and no chemicals....

Went up to my Dad's place in Waterford Pa... He reported seeing "deer" regularly in the back pasture.
So, around dusk... I stood by the gate with my telephoto lens and saw these...
3-Bucks, 2-Doe, in different parts of the field. These pics are from 80-100 yards.
The big one with symetrical rack looks like a 10-point. The one with the damaged antler would likely be a 12-point (undamaged antler has 6 points, the other only 2), and the small one is probably a 6-point.
Its hard to tell... as the pics aren't great hand-held from this distance, and fading light.

I leave my stand up year around. Live next to the leased ground and the neighbors ground. Saves a ton of work. Change the straps every other yer and this is the year.

Checked the trail cam yesterday. Not much. This deer seems to have some sort of problem on it's neck. What do you suppose it is? Just burrs or something? Marks from a scratching post? 🤔

Some video captures from yesterday morning of a nice basic 8 point. He has a split G2 on his left side. He appears to be a fairly young deer. I got photos and video of him on three cameras.

He took a few drinks of water from the tub that's buried near the tree.

It's a 4x4 post with a solar light mounted into it. I have a half dozen of them along the walking path I mow around the property I put them in a year or so ago. I have another half dozen to install but it's been so dry here that the ground is hard to dig in, we did just get 1.7" of rain on Thursday and this morning another 0.75" and counting so I should be able to install them this week. They work great for mounting trail cameras to, and the deer and other wildlife don't seem to mind them.

Apparently Bambi has developed a taste for green watermelons GRRRRR!
There were 5 on this plant. One they got 2 days ago and now this one plus 2 others that were chewed off at the stem.
One decent size left so I put an oversize tomato cage around it anchored to a fence post.
