The rut of the Black-tailed deer has begun.

This is the time of year that you need to be especially vigilant when driving as bucks are chasing does. Steve Coffee-Smith photographed a four-point buck this week. The buck was looking at an equestrian and her horse.

So give these big bucks a wide berth. They only have one thing on their minds!

Thanks to Steve for allowing me to share his photo with you here.
