The upcoming rut season brings mixed feelings. I’m definitely looking forward to shooting the brutes in a couple months or so, but I also know they’ll be trying their best to rub on my establishing trees and bushes in the yard. I have most everything protected but still have some trunks that I need to cover before the first of September when they’ll begin rubbing the velvet off of their antlers. We lost a flowering dogwood to one of them last year and hope not to have that repeated.
Here are some photos that I took on an outing with Miguel last autumn. All images were taken with a 500 mm lens.

I have a feeling at the homestead, that this upcoming season you will be alright. Try this ground Scotch Bonnet pepper, 1/3 dish wash soap, 1/3 cup vegetable oil, 1/3 cup Mint oil, 1/4 cup cayenne pepper. Put that in a spray bottle, use gloves when mixing and when applying. This should work. Great images.
Nice photos of the White Tailed Bucks.
