they look like axis deer. Even tho most axis are reddishbrown with white spots there are other hide variations that are dark brown, light tan and red like this.... had to look it all up to make sure

I wondered that too Dutch, but the bigger racks in the back of the pack there, are structured more like elk, and red deer, with the crown points up top....way more bone than an axis deer....pics don't show it well though, but my nikons did!!!

You must have been lost to wonder into this part of the country:) I own across the road from where you took the pictures and they are Red Deer. You should hear them in September when they are in rut. The have a roar that sounds a lot like an African lion.

Sparky that must be awsome to hear. I know I got chills down my spine when I heard elk bugle for the first time in ID.
