This doe is full frame no crop. She came up and sat next to my truck to get away from the 8 pointer laying down in pic above.

Great shots! Easy to tell you're from back east by how many points you count <GRIN>

White tailed deer = brow tines ARE included
Mule deer = brow tines ARE NOT included

This is what I was taught

Nice photos

Yep, but your 8-pointer is a 4-pointer to us... Growing up I always heard it as 'eastern count' vs 'western count'

Not just fantastic shots, but these big well-fed fellas do look mighty tasty. I miss the nice simple hunting regs back in Nebraska. Washington rules are so dang complicated these days I don't even go out.

They do get plenty of food and they don't have to worry about hunters. They are inside my work facility and can't get out so we have to buy food for them even though their is plentty of food for them here.

So if you only count half the points how do you count the ones who have say three on one side and four on the other? we get them every year here.

We round up, of course!

Just curious, what sort of facility? Takes a pretty good area to support a healthy deer population, and yours are obviously healthy!

I work for a pipeline. We have 165 acres that are tank farm is on and half of it is wooded and we also have some good size fields a little creek and two small ponds. We have about 45 deer a ton of foxes,raccoons,skunks, turtles,frogs and red tailed hawks that nest in here. I’ve seen great horned owls and a barn owl, they were probably just passing through and I’ve seen a couple bald eagles stop in.

And then there is the geese, filthy animals. The foxes do their best but they don’t take enough of them out, we need something in here to thin them out.

We have a huge ten foot fence around the place and we are in the middle of a residential area and the neighbors throw all kinds of fruit and vegetables over the fence for the animals. Deer love pumpkins and they are getting tons right now, I’m waiting to see a buck get on stuck on his rack.

All the animals in here are such a bonus for me as wildlife photography is my favorite, the spring time I come in on days off to get shots of the Fox kits, I really think one year I’ll get to pet one.

Cool! I pulled up your Glen Mills location on the ‘ol Google Maps and was wondering if that tank farm was involved... It would be great to see critters like that on a regular basis.

Well, except the geese.
