Bloody Deer Antlers

5 Oct

My husband photographed these deer in our back yard. He was especially thrilled to get a shot of the whitetail buck deer with bloody antlers. A fuzzy velvet covers the whitetail’s antlers. The deer removes the velvet by rubbing his crown on saplings and shrubs, thus the blood. Ick.

I had to look up the whole bloody velvet antler process on the Internet. I did not just automatically know this. I’m a city girl. Don’t you forget it.

“I like California but I’m dyed-in-the-wool Oklahoman. I see a deer in L.A., and everybody’s standing around it taking pictures. Back home, that’s the enemy!”

Blake Shelton

I agree with Blake.  Here in Wisconsin, deer are our enemies.  Ever have one hit your car?  You can get hurt, your car is damaged or out of commission for awhile, and your insurance rates go up.  Stressful!

I really love my country scene Garnet Hill flannel sheets.  I bought these sheets over 10 years ago and use them sparingly.  All of my guests love them.  I made the deer pillowcases – appropriate for New Jersey and Wisconsin – they are 100% cotton and cozy too.

Faux Hunting #deerhunting

When in Wisconsin, do as other Wisconsiner’s do!  

Would we have done this when we lived in New Jersey?  NO!  Anyway, we “faux” hunt.  The gun and jacket are borrowed.  The first and last time we will do this.  We like being in nature.

We are not fond of deer – they are very dangerous.  Have you ever hit one with your car?  And they are full of tics.  Have you ever gotten lyme disease?  They are very pretty and everything, but add extra stress to our lives.

p.s.  Jasmine, this is my backyard.  See how good that green picnic table would look?

It’s deer hunting season in Wisconsin.  We don’t hunt, but it’s a very common past time here.  I shot this while driving down a country road while lots of hunters were out and about.

This is the best kind of deer to have in your headlights.
