Whitetail deer pictures

Whitetail deer are a medium sized deer native to the United States. One feature that has ensured the species survival is that they can adapt to just about any kind of terrain, or food source. Some species do well in forest, or grasslands – but not both. Whitetail deer can adapt to woodlands, grassy plains and even newly developed neighborhoods.

One of the primary food sources for whitetail deer are acorns from oak trees. But they can graze on grass, twigs, and all kinds of foliage.

Even though bucks are usually considered males and does are considered females. Sometimes a female deer will grow antlers. When a female deer does grow antlers, they are considered hemorphidites. Because of hemorphidite deer, most regions issue hunting licenses with either “Antler” or “Anterless” stamped on them – instead of “Buck” or “Doe”.

Flashlights sold out before the storm

As Hurricane Ike was approaching Texas in September of 2008, one of the first items to sell out was flashlights. The cheaper the flashlight, the faster it sold out. And it was not just regular flashlights that sold out, it was also the hand crank kind.Ā  This picture was taken about 2 days before Hurricane Ike made landfall.
