Big Bucks of Pike Island


All,

I've spent several mornings down on Pike Island photographing the deer rut and thought you might like to see some of the shots I've gotten.

The deer were active for the last few weeks, but I've not been in the park for the last several days so don't know if the rut is ending yet or not. Probably will be soon, if not already. Sometimes there is a brief uptick in activity in December as the last of the does come into estrus, but with the high buck to doe ratio on the island and in the park, I doubt any does are not bred at this point.

See the photos on my website at http://www.gordondietzman.com/photos/pikeislanddeer/index.html

Once I found an area where the deer were active (they tended to cluster in different areas of the island each day), I'd just sit down and watch the activity swirl around me. The behavior was fascinating to watch.

Enjoy....

Giving Thanks

Hello everyone!

I want to thank all of you for making the FSSP Camera Club something I look forward to every month. I always did better in school when the classes were educational and fun. I learn something new at our meetings and there are always a lot of laughs.

There are a lot of ideas and plans for the future and I think by the support this group shares - the future is long for the club.

Thanks again and we will see you December 4th.
