When I was driving out to Heritage Pointe Last week to shoot video, I noticed a large deer in a clearing along US 64. It was odd. We are experiencing very hot weather for mid-June, with daily temperatures in the 90's.
I would not expect to see deer moving in daylight in hot weather.
And today, when I was going out, I looked up Patriot Drive, the first turn into Heritage Pointe, and saw a doe and a younger deer, maybe a yearling.
That got me going. I dropped my flyers in the flyer boxes, and took off with the camera. Of course they were gone, but this nice young buck with his antlers in velvet greeted me on Patriot Drive. He was a little camera shy, but posed briefly before he slipped under cover. I think he is proud of his new antlers, and wanted me to see them.
I am still curious about the daylight movement. I wonder if they need to source water more often in the heat.
