Buck in Velvet on Jones Island
We have seen so many deer on Jones over the years that I am sure we are watching some grow up along with our kids.  Is this the little buck that looked cross eyed at a marshmallow my son stuck on its nose one quiet evening around a campfire. Is it the one that met me at the waters edge when I came ashore in the dinghy?
