Q: I walk each evening in a neighborhood just outside of town. I’ve enjoyed watching fawns and their mothers. Recently, I’ve begun to see bucks with antlers. I don’t know much about deer. Do the males have antlers all year?
I put some serious mileage on my ancient Buick during a recent birding trip to Fort Davis, located some 400 miles from Wimberley in the Davis Mountains deep in the Big Bend area of Texas.
The countryside was unusually green from recent rains and the desert landscape looked vibrant and verdant.
I always enjoy the mesas, buttes and peaks of this wide-open country, where occasional pronghorn antelope can be seen.
