Glenholme GEO: Eight-Point Buck

Mr. Morehouse photographed this eight-point buck in his yard recently. Bucks, or male deer, grow antlers each year and then shed them. When the antlers grow in each year, they are covered in a soft tissue known as velvet, which the deer rubs off against trees.  Antlers are made of bone that contain extra collagen, a protein, that makes tissue strong but more flexible and less likely to break.
