Boys Of Summer (2011)
Whitetail Bucks In Velvet - Shenandoah National Park, Virginia
This is my 3rd consecutive year posting a 'Boys Of Summer' series which features bucks in velvet. But this time around I am only showcasing 3 bucks, it is a bachelor group of my favorite bucks that I refer to as the 3 Amigos (ha ha). Although there are numerous other bucks at SNP with bigger racks, I have spent a great deal of time around these 3 guys (this will be my 3rd year pursuing them) so I am somewhat familiar with them and their behaviors. Have you noticed that 3 is a common occurence here? :-)
There's a sense of comfort in familiarity, and I'm sure that's a two-way street. I started a Whitetail photographical journey last year in July and it didn't end until late March of this year. I have learned a lot about Whitetail behavior from these 3 trophy bucks. I give them nicknames cause it's much easier for me to reference them in that manner.

THANKS FOR VIEWING!
