Outdoor Wednesday - Deer Season

Here in Arkansas, deer season is in full swing. Like most southern states, hunting is a big part of the culture. While my husband doesn't hunt, my dad and brothers always did when I was growing up. Here in Arkansas, deer season is the biggest on any the different seasons through the year (although duck hunting is really big in the part of the state where I live now).

These pictures were shot back in June while my husband and I were in the Northwest part of the state during our anniversary trip back in June. While walking around the cottages where we were staying, we heard a rustling and stopped to see this:
Then there were more!And More!
I think there were 9 in total that we counted. And they let us get pretty close to them too.Thanks for stopping by! I'm posting my Christmas decor and crafts over the next few days, stop by for a look! And I'll be hosting a giveaway at the end of the week, check back!

See more great Ourdoor shots at Outdoor Wednesday!


  1. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh, spectacular!!!!

    My Wednesday post is published. Do come by if you get a chance...it's all Gulf Waters today. Found HERE

  2. Oh Wow. I've seen two together but never that many. Amazing.

  3. Wow - beautiful photographs!

    A few times a year, deer walk up the hill and we end up face-to-face while they eat my flowers and I drink my morning coffee, but I never can get a good photo. Loved seeing yours today!


  4. A very nice deer showing today. My son loves to deer hunt. Looks like he needs to come to Ark. as he does not see that many where he hunts.

  5. Now this is the way to shoot deer!

    Not that I dislike hunters, daddy hunted and I have a cousin with a 7000 acre hunting lodge in Georgia and another whose been on safari twice in Africa, but I prefer to take my shots with a camera.

    Beautiful photos!

  6. Your photos are gorgeous. I hope you have a wonderful Outdoor Wednesday and enjoy the holidays ahead.

  7. Oh, I love them! I think deer are some of God's most magnificent creatures, and I can't believe y'all got so close to them. These are amazing shots. I grew up in the Deep South,too, and my father was a HUGE hunter as were all my boy cousins. My husband doesn't hunt, and I'm secretly really glad. Shhhhh... I do appreciate venison steak, though. ;-)

    Happy Outdoor Wednesday...
