About 0600 this morning
« on: March 08, 2018, 07:58:29 AM »
Stepped out the door today to see 12 elk and 15 blacktails and if my eyes were not deceiving me 2 white tail "flags" bounding into the woods.   Apparently Vancouver Island may somehow have this species showing up but I could be wrong.   The deer scattered quickly.  The Elk lingered.  Pics are not great given cheap camera/zoom function and low light.  ...

Nice pictures.. just clarify the deer are "Mule Deer"   not white tails (white tails don't have white butts. 

Beautiful just the same . I would love to wake up to that every morning !!!

Hi TC.... actually all the pics are Elk.     The deer group browsing nearby were blacktail that took off as I approached the Elk.

Wikepedia:  "Two forms of black-tailed deer or blacktail deer that occupy coastal woodlands in the Pacific Northwest are subspecies of the mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus). They have sometimes been treated as a species, but virtually all recent authorities maintain they are subspecies."

I hunted White Tail deer in Ontario for years .  When the group of deer took off as I approached the Elk,  2 of the deer were significantly larger than the rest and I noticed as they bounded off into the woods the characteristic tail "flag" of the White Tail could be seen.  I have been told that White Tails have reportedly be seen on the south Vancouver Island.   I really don't know if they indeed were but ... those large white flags had me wondering.

... regards
Gary

After I posted, I took a second look and realized my mistake. I am from Ont. and have hunted many White tails as well.

The only shooting I do now is with a camera, got rid of the guns for gold pans.
