053 AUTUMN IN THE KONZA - WHITE-TAILED DEER
Konza Prairie, Kansas. Shoulder-high in big bluestem, a whitetail buck pauses as it works its way along the contour of the prairie hillside, backlit by the golden light of an October Flint Hills sunset. Large whitetail bucks like this one spend most fall days bedded down in plum thickets and wooded draws, coming out in the evening to mark territories and pursue whitetail does that will soon be ready to mate.
