10-Point Whitetail Buck
10-Point Whitetail Buck, Shenandoah National Park, Virginia.
I used to see this guy a lot for 2 years in a row, in any season, then last year (2009) he was nonexistent.
I am not sure if he died of natural causes or was illegally killed. Illegal hunting in and around SNP has always been a problem, and the latest incident with a conviction occurred in November 2009.
