This episode we are going to discuss a few different topics.
First up is my Opening Day report. Had a “kinda” close encounter with a “target buck”
Next, I give my short review of the Scoutlook DeerLog App.
Last we talk about deer glands.I know, I know, it was supposed to be on scouting… I explain that. After I butcher the pronunciation of odocoileus virginanus, I jump into each gland breakdown. There are 8 major glands (and a bunch of not-so-major ones) in a deer body that are used for communication and interaction. We are going to cover the Interdigital, Metatarsal, Tarsal, Preorbital, Forehead, Nasal, Preputial ans Salivary Glands. Much of the information has been conducted by Dr. Karl V. Miller of the Danial B. Warnell School of Forest Resources at the University of Georgia. I also discuss the Vomeronasal Organ (that was a mouthful…).
Let me apologize for the squeaky chair. I am moving the studio around and apparently I haven’t worked out all of the bugs….
