Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge Whitetail Bucks

By | April 15, 2021

I make lots of trips to the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma, but I also make trips to the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge (Oklahoma). I was at that refuge when they closed the campground because of COVID-19 in March 2020.

Here are a couple of Whitetail Bucks growing new antlers I photographed on one of my trips to the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge.
