I got an hour of film at a wheat field near the trailhead at Konza Prairie near Manhattan, and deer and turkeys made it a great wildlife encounter. I never get tired of seeing deer, especially when bucks are still in hard horn. They’ll shed their antlers during the next month, if they haven’t already, and lucky for me, one really nice buck that came out still carried his impressive rack. The antlers weren’t very massive, indicating the deer probably wasn’t very old. But he was a dandy to film.
It was even better when he walked up to a smaller buck and started a friendly shoving match. This wasn’t a fight, just some light roughhousing between bites of wheat. The action took place in sunlight, providing a good look at behavior not seen every day.
Wherever you live, keep your camera ready. An afternoon drive, even through a city park, can often yield unexpected treasure. You'll never have a "right place and right time" without being there.
