Bash and Murph, April 2012

The whole group has dropped antlers, earlier than ever, with Mike being the last one.  Allan has found each pair and also was present when one of Mike’s antlers fell — a first for Allan!  We are selling antlers (except EGee’s) for $100 a pair. It’s a great way to support the herd. Last year we sold out so let us know if you want a pair. We just sold Bash and Murph antlers to Jason C. who has been a regular buyer since 2007. Thank you, Jason. Another regular since 2010, John C., has also told us he will purchase a pair. Photos of the shed antlers for sale are available, just ask. If available, you will also receive a picture of the deer wearing his antlers. Because they started dropping them so much earlier this year than last, my photo gallery is not complete this year.

Just after each deer loses his antlers, he tends to hide in the trees away from the group in fear of being defenseless. Now that only Mike is left with his antlers, there is less fear and they are hanging out together near the barn again.

Bash lost his set of antlers on Saturday, March 31, 2012. This is the earliest ever, another testament to the early spring warmth we have been experiencing this year. Even he seemed a bit surprised and at one moment he started to challenge Max to a fight and was about to charge forward when he suddenly remembered he had no antlers and began a hasty retreat. Allan had no trouble retrieving the antlers. Bash has retreated to the east end of the Reserve away from the others.
