Jeff and I were having lunch in the kitchen when a buck wandered across the backyard, along the edge of the woods. "Wow", I said, "Look at that rack!"
I could not count the points on the deer's antlers, but knew this was the largest set I had ever seen on a deer in our yard. It was larger than the antlers which hang in some hunting lodges.
I thought of Jeff's friend, John, who bow hunts deer in Wilton. I wondered if he would take up residence on our deck to get a chance at this beautiful buck. I hope that this majestic deer is able to survive hunting season.
