Feeding frenzy?

On the drive to a trailhead today late in the afternoon, we just had to pause to let Casey check out a black tailed yearling. It’s never enough to just slow down, a pacing border collie in the backseat means stop, roll down the windows, and wait until the young deer’s had it with its excited onlooker.

This youngster couldn’t have cared less about an audience today, much less Casey. This year so far we haven't come across one blacktail in the open on a hike, but there's always been plenty of rustling in underbrush thick with payback watchers.
