Does! Some deer! Some female deer!

Embigennate to play "Where's Waldo?" with the fauna some 9000 feet up the slope of Parajito Mountain.

You can see the first one without embiggenating but two and three are hidden pretty well. #2, I think, is the one I'd like to take home to dinner.

If you find deer exciting I'll box and send you mine. As soon as they are done eating the plants on my front porch.

*pajarito* (little bird, in Spanish)

Amazing how deer are so nonchalant and easy to spot when you aren't actually hunting for them.

"easy to spot when you aren't actually hunting"

Yeah, they can tell.

" 'easy to spot when you aren't actually hunting'

Yeah, they can tell."

I think they can smell the metal in the guns or the broadheads (for those that prefer the quieter, more difficult, pursuit method).

If the spirit so moves you, consider watching the elk at Angel Fire. There are (or were, anyhow ...) two herds that hang around town, one on the north side and one around the golf course on the south side. This time of year, they were out and about in late afternoon, and they ignore people quite regally.

A) See, this is why trucks have (or should have) rifle racks. And covered beds. Um, you know -- just in case.

B) Look closer at the one of the left. Notice the size of the ears, the shape of the head and body. That's no deer, it's an immature jackelope!

Paul said...

No, the one on the left is this years fawn. There ears are really big compared to where the skull is in size.

Tastee.

I am not an expert on does as deer, and am willing to stand corrected, but I think those aren't just deer, they're mulies.

Tam said...

mikee,

It's almost as if the picture is titled "mulies.jpg". ;)

Paul said...

Deer, Mulies, Ungulates. All tastee.

Mulies are reportedly harder to harvest, but need a chance for personal tests.

Simpsons did it!

Obligatory (really bad quality) Simpsons clip! http://youtu.be/wcQiYSzwN3c

D'oh!

Dear Tam, while I enjoy your blog, it has never ever occurred to me to "View Image Info" on your posted pictures.

You KNEW they were mulies. I was guessing. Which may be why you write this blog, and I read it.

Drang said...

I was about 99% sure they were mulies, based on where Tam was when she took the picture.

For some bizarre reason, some jackanapes in Olympia decided to try and introduce white tails to Washington state. They didn't take, but there is an odd hybrid race of whitetail/mule deer cross in the Fort Lewis area. Or so it was explained to me when I was eyeing the many mounted heads in the outdoor rec bar, trying to figure out what the deal was with all the racks that had an odd number of tines on one side, and an even number on the other.
