    It was like a banded duck
    I spent an hr on the phone w the biologist

    The refuge is full of pro photographers and this deer had been a target of many of them

    People would report sightings as I did

    They ear tagged 90 that day

    Mine was last deer tagged
    I killed him like 4 miles from where tagged
    He was 6.5 when I killed him
    Tagged as a button buck

    Baited to a pen for a while then those close pen and tag them all

    Any ideas? Opposites leave. Stays mostly below the water but a few leaves may break the surface.

    Got some other pics if necessary. Did see about 150 teal 100 woodies and 50 widgeon in pond so still some ducks in eastern NC

    2nd plant species is more than likely Ludwigia palustris. Had to do some research because we don't commonly see it down here on the Gulf Coast.

    That's strange you guys don't see it on the gulf coast, it's pretty well distributed through out the southeastern U.S.
