|In the herd of does are some juvenile bucks, just beginning to grow their antlers.|
|A blonde doe. She's got a recessive gene, and is not an albino. Her offspring have all had regular coloring.|
|The bucks approach.|
|Antlers are shed in the spring. ODFW collects a few for educational purposes but it is illegal|
for the public to enter the refuge to collect more.
|Antlers are bone and are naturally white, but bucks rub them against trees to remove the velvet. This buck|
rubbed his against an alder tree and they were very red.
