Buck in Velvet at Cades Cove
White-tailed Deer (Odocoileus virginianus ) are quite numerous in Cades Cove in the Smoky Mountains. This young buck had medium-sized antlers in "velvet" in July; he should be quite a handsome deer by fall. The Smokies are also the home of recently introduced elk on the North Carolina side of the park.
