|Buck in my tall grass meadow, late summer 2011|

"It's all about the meat!" so say many of my hunter friends. Perhaps they are right. Perhaps not.
But I cringe when I see bloodied bucks propped up on hood of cars and trucks and deer dangling
from deer poles with the proud hunters standing alongside their "monster bucks" And flip through
the pages of many outdoor magazines during deer season and there are hundreds of shots of
hunters posed with and even hugging their dead deer.
I know when I go to the grocery store for meat I never pose next to a great looking rib-eye steak
or post on Facebook an image of ground beef. But that's just me.
This tree-hugging meat eating outdoor writer (me) has a strong preference for images of deer like
the ones I shot in my yard this year - with my camera.
