Wisconsin White-tailed Deer: Random Travel Pic of the Week

This time of year, when traveling in Wisconsin, you get the distinct impression you’re being watched. As we enter autumn, you can see your peeping toms with greater ease: Wisconsin’s beautiful white-tailed deer. While many locals like to hunt them for sport, I prefer to appreciate them from afar, shooting them only with a camera. 

These deer were up on La Crosse’s Grandad Bluff, watching from the roadside as I passed by. If you’ve never been to the Upper Midwest, it may be unthinkable to you that these lovely creatures venture onto our highways, frequently finding their end on someone’s bumper. 

In Northern Minnesota, near my parent’s cabin in Fifty Lakes, they gather in grassy fields at dusk, so intent upon enjoying their evening meal that they can hardly muster the interest to glance in your direction as you drive by. By morning’s light you can find the pressed, soft grass where they’ve bedded down in the evening near the marshy fringe of Eagle Lake.
