Our first picture with game camera

This was the first picture we ever took with the game camera. Imagine our surprise! We haven't seen this big boy since.

We had deer before, but after one doe was hit on the road in front of the property, we thought we were deerless.
We had no idea of the number of deer which have re-inhabited the property.

After an examination of feces found on the pond dam, we realized we had the best deer habitat one could hope for. A grove of a dozen or more mature persimmon trees next to an old creek line with an adjacent group of sumacs to provide daytime cover. Those persimmon seeds are in all the deer scat we have ever seen.
