Dropping the Antlers

January 7, 2009

Looks like the “son of Peg-Leg Jr.” has lost his antlers.
I’m wondering if I should wonder off into the ravine to
see if I can find them.

At first, I thought it might be one of the females, but
on closer examination, I discovered the deep-red coloured
patches where the antlers once were.  I guess it takes some
time for the wounds to heal and close.

The older male is always close by.  I haven’t seen Peg-Leg
for a couple of weeks.
