Wild of the Week: Deer in the water

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Alex Kiscellus had plenty of sightings of deer in the Fox River and earned WOTW for the photo and the commentary on it.

He emailed,

``Twice had deer invade the stretch [of the Fox River] I was fishing and cross to the other side. Not quite like having a bull moose cross feet in front of your canoe on a Boundary Water backwater, but stops your casting for a few to appreciate the beauty that abounds in a somewhat urban river.''

Well put.

Send nominations for WOTW, an occasional celebration of wild things around Chicago outdoors on tthe Sun-Times outdoors page on Sundays, to straycasts@sbcglobal.net
