On a recent road trip to Oregon and Idaho, I came upon white-tailed deer in both states.
In Oregon, west of Portland, Columbia white-tailed deer were present on a duck club I was viewing. Managed to photograph several, but the conditions were not great for photography. Here is a picture of a whitetail doe.
The Columbia white-tailed deer is a threatened species and is protected in northern Oregon. No hunting is allowed, but in southern Oregon, there is limited opportunity to hunt them.
On Monday, Linda and I arrived at a friend’s home near Riggins, Idaho. While leaving on Tuesday, a few whitetails were caught out in the open. This whitetail buck stopped and posed.
