This fellow is actually standing up on a small ridge with his nose in the air and his eyes to the skyline.
Sure, this is a youngster and they pretty much avoid people, but black bears can be unpredictable.
Here's a mule deer that came back to life to haunt the fellow that got him!
We love to stalk them, even on our walk through the neighborhood.
If they would only cooperate like this during deer season.
The rack on this buck is pushing his ears so far down he probably can't hear too well.
This happened to me on the opener of NY firearms season, 2019.
When you're looking for a buck and you see one. be careful what you ask for.
We are all hunters.
Hunting is a means by which we find out how tuned in we are to our natural world.
