Oh deer.

.

Don’t you hate it when someone beats you to the buffet line?

.

.

The only thing you can do is use your superior size to muscle out the competition.

.

.

Or so I’ve heard.

The next two pictures aren’t the best quality…blame my zoom lens and our resident buck’s propensity for showing up at dusk…. but I thought someone might be interested to see the antler shedding process.

.

.

One half gone, one to go. Talk about being lopsided.

.

.

Right after the shed. What’s left are big boney bumps with an active blood flow.

It always looks painful to me, but I’m assured it’s not. Though how any anter-less naturalist can vouch for that I don’t know.
