Near and deer

NEAR_and_DEER
Few things warm the hearts of Sitka’s hunters like coming across a nice, fat buck in peak condition. Few things cool their enthusiasm like discovering a big brownie got there first! Hugh Bevan set up this trailcam “a couple of miles” from the beach on Kruzof Is. near Sitka. These two images (buck, then bear) were captured on October 18 and November 5 respectively. While the bear doesn’t look like she could hold another bite after the summer’s record salmon run, there’s no doubt that she’s interested!
