The wait was finally over this evening at around 8pm, what an exciting end of the day.
I’ve been in visual contact with this piebald deer for about five months now (location not to be disclosed). The previous four encounters have been on my way home from RRR (Rod and Rifle Rag) headquarters late in the evening or in the early morning hours (12-1AM). All the times have been in the same general area, but ever so slightly moving west from my original sighting.
The first time I really didn’t realize what a unique sighting it was. After more research and talking to others it has taken on more and more meaning for me. I’ve been as close as to within 10 yards of this beautiful deer, as it has been crossing a county road right in front of my car or in the ditch just off. Every time it has been with three or even four others, never alone. The deer has also grown in size as time has went by.
After each time I see the deer, I always wonder if I would see it again. I’ve tried to use the camera on my phone before to no avail. Tonight on my way into RRR headquarters, not leaving, I spotted it as I flew by it. Practically slamming on the brakes and shifting my car into reverse, the opportunity finally arose. Thanks to my wife who suggested I just take our digital camera with me every time I go into RRR headquarters. These photos were taken from about 50-60 yards…hopefully I will get some more, but just seeing the piebald deer from time to time is a treat in itself!
