This is the third and final of the shots I got of the axis does out back across the fenceline. I actually took these (see gallery for prev. 2) right after I took the one looking down the driveway right before this one in the gallery. I turned around and there they were. Can you see the third one just out of the frame? 💖🤠💖

“Lip-curling Snow Buck!” A 2 1/2 year old 8-point Whitetail Buck tests the smell of where a doe peed in the snow in front of a snow-covered bush in west-central Ohio, to see if the doe is at any stage of estrus. I see a lot of photos mis-captioned showing a Whitetail Buck lip-curling and the caption reads something along the lines of the buck is downwind of a doe and is lip-curling her airborne scent to see if she is coming into heat. In my experience, Whitetail Bucks only lip-curl the actual urine of a Whitetail Doe, not airborne scent. They will rub their nose in it, and will appear to be eating something off the ground. But I have been up close to so many bucks that have lip-curled doe urine, and watched them stick their nose in the spot where I just saw the doe pee, that I know what a buck looks like when he’s about to come up lip-curling instead of chewing on something. I’ve actually had photographer’s with me where I’d tell them to get ready because the buck was about to lip-curl, and sure enough, the buck did, and the other photographer and myself both got the lip-curl photo. The photographer with me is always amazed and in awe, when I predict this unique rutting behavior. And this knowledge I have attained is because of many years of close-range observation of un-molested Whitetail Bucks at close quarters from a blind. Have you ever observed a Whitetail Buck lip-curl the urine of a Whitetail Doe, which is also known as the Flehman Response? . . . . . . . . #deer #buck #antlers #biggame #whitetail #whitetaildeer #bigbucks #bigbuck #whitetails #buckfever #qdma #monsterbuck #whitetailbuck #deerlife #monsterdeer #deeranddeerhunting #hunting #redneck #hunt #deerhunting #huntingseason #deerseason #outdoorsman #sickforit #bowhunting #bowhunter #bowseason #archeryhunting #rut #therut

Lots of bucks roaming today. One fellow was in quite a brawl recently... but he is healing. And, of course, mom and triplets are always close by. I know I haven't posted many pictures of them lately, but we are still blessed to see them EVERY day. #theycallmeSnowWhite #deer #deerlife #doeadeer #triplets #thebuckstopshere

08/18/18 : a.m. Close encounter with a big fawn this morning - almost the size of a full grown doe. They usually drop their spots - maybe this one forgot to. 😂 Look close, behind her back, she paused because of the big ol spider and it’s elaborate webs. Guess I would have too. ____________________________________________ L.NICH©LS•2019
