Wordless Wednesday .............. November 15,2017

This beautiful buck has not been around for 
about a month, so we suspect he's been taken by a hunter.
It's a fact of life here, but I'm very sad and I'll miss seeing
 this beautiful buck saunter through our property.


  1. I hope you're wrong, but it is the way of things.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. Big hug to you and Russell and tons of scritches to Miss Lucy. ♥♥♥

  2. That is a shame. I couldn't kill anything. I even catch and release spiders.

  3. He is magnificent, it looks like he is posing for the camera.

  4. Aww! that's sad if true

    Have a nice day :-)

  5. That is sad. I hate the deer hunting season. Have a good day.

  6. He's lovely, and i hope he has just started hanging in a different yard.

  7. I'm crossing my fingers that you're wrong and that this buck is off fathering babies elsewhere.

  8. yes, so beautiful and wonderful photo ~ hoping for the best that you see him again soon,

    Happy Week to you,
    A ShutterBug Explores,

  9. Kathe,

    Indeed a beautiful creature! My daddy is a big hunter. If a buck showed up in his yard I'll give you one guess what he'd do. Like you said, it's a part of life. I have no problem with people hunting wildlife for food or when it's deemed necessary to thin a population to prevent disease and overcrowding. Thanks for sharing such a magnificent photo. Maybe, he'll had a little buddy who'll come visit you sometime. Thanks for visiting but I noticed you didn't join my linky party. You're most certainly welcome to! ;) Have a joyful, blessed Thanksgiving!

  10. I´m walking a lot in nature so I understand your feelings. It is a gorgeous buck :)
