A buck with a damaged antler is the first to visit this year’s feeding station:

The antler could very well continue to grow out at this weird angle. The antler is still in velvet and will be for the next month or so.

Not bad for West Virginia.

Not a coyote, but I’ll take it:

It’s just the musk from the glands that brought in this deer, who is apparently too wise to come into the other camera.

I had Miley out this evening. I was going to put the SD card in the trail camera and set it for the evening.

At the barn, Miley assumed this posture:

I zoomed in on her.

I knew she was smelling something at the far end of the meadow.

I told her to sit, and she did.

As I came around behind a black cherry that had already lost its leaves, I noticed a gray form standing on the grassy point on the far end of the pasture.

I zoomed my camera in from behind the cherry tree, and I saw antlers!

I was able to adjust my position, and I got this shot of him.

This buck has been on the trail cam many times, but this was the first I got him on my handheld camera.

Miley was able to smell this deer from over 100 yards.

Golden retrievers have good noses, and they also have a lot of sense.

You can learn so much when you go out with them.

Now, I certainly would have seen this buck had I continued on without the dog, but Miley gave me a heads up and a chance to plan my shot out a bit more.

The human and dog relationship is “primate seeing” and “canine smelling.”

And it works pretty well.
