Very Nice shot of the Rut.

Thats some RACK on The Buck. Looks like the type you see on display at outdoor shows with odd points.
Where was this shot??
PS I'm not a hunter!!!

Jan Dolfing October 05, 2008

Thanks all for your nice comments.
At Jack : the image is made at a Dutch National Nature Area which is called "De Hoge Veluwe", this is one of the largest parks in Holland, where animals still live in the wild. The animals can go were they like in an area of 20x20 km (and that is big in Holland, where people live everywhere)
As a photographer you are free to stroll through the area, except for som small areas where the resting places of these deer is. And about hunting : that is forbidden anyway :)

Greetings from Holland : Jan #6555938
