Deer in the valley

In a lot of the histories I have been looking through to create my "Sunday Stories" series, it talks about the scarcity of game in the Platte River Valley. It's good to know that proper management of our wildlife by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission has alleviated this problem.

This photo was taken near dusk recently just north of Sutherland off of the Birdwood road. It totaled 25 - 30 animals. It wasn't the only herd seen that evening, either. Several other herds of 5-10 animals were also spotted.
