Trail cameras are still running heavy in Purcellville and other parts of Western Loudoun by two of my favorite volunteers, Paige and Peter. We've been getting all sorts of results, though bobcat and coyote activity have seemed to slow down recently out there.
The biggest excitement with the Purcellville cameras has been images of "Tank". He's a white-tailed deer buck that has been growing an impressive set of antlers. Peter named him, of course, and the name is not only fitting, but has stuck well for the past month or so.
Here is "Tank", one of the biggest bucks around this year. It's hard to tell from this image, but there are (what we think and have seen in other images) 12 points on his antlers. It'll be interesting to see if Peter is able to hunt this beast this year.
Tank is the closest deer, followed by two other impressive bucks behind him.
