Unprecedented rebound of Whitetail deer due to conservationism

By the time the sun is high enough to illuminate the patch of oak trees on the hill, a herd of whitetail deer (Odocoileus virginianus) will have been feeding in the shadows for quite some time.

Once the air is warmed with the sun's light, the group will disappear at its leisure into the cover of the grassy creek bottoms nearby.
