Kentucky Color: Deer off KY 704 on a misty morning

Click on headline for introduction with photo(s)
By Billy Joe Fudge

Adair County deer on a chilly, misty morning just after sunrise in mid-October 2011.

One four-point buck and young doe on the lower slope of Kinky Knob seemed to think that if they stood right still, I would not see them.


The other deer, in Crocus Creek bottom, was a spike buck grazing on winter wheat in Travis Coomer's Crocus Creek Bottom, just south of old Inroad, on what used to be the O.P. Petty place.

I hope readers enjoy the photo half as much as I did when I spotted the peaceful scene with the bright morning sunrise, the beautiful backdrop of hills, and then a tower of fog rising like smoke from a chimney.

That place has a special memory for me, it's by the swimming hole where I learned, when still a teenager - a couple or 30 or so years ago - to swim. -BILLY JOE FUDGE
