Whitetail Bucks Wading Slough

March 10, 2018  •  2 Comments

I got lucky on seeing these two Whitetail Bucks wading across this slough at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. I say I was lucky but actually I took advantage of a couple of refuge employees. I was driving near the Reeves Boat Ramp when I saw a couple of refuge employees park and walk into the woods. I knew this area had lots of deer so I headed for the fishing pier located at the Reeves Boat Ramp. My hope was that these two employees would get the deer moving and that the deer would cross the slough to safety. By the time I got to the fishing pier I saw several Does already crossing and a few seconds later I saw these two Bucks crossing. It's great when a plan works. The only thing that could have been better would have been having the deer cross closer to where I was. The Refuge has gotten a lot of rain in the past few weeks and this sloughs water was high so they were crossing in a low spot.

Here is a photo of a Whitetail Buck I photographed toward the end of this month: Whitetail Buck Still With Antlers
