Photographer Lans Christensen spotted this pair of deer on Kent’s Cobble Road in the mist on Saturday morning, Oct. 5. He noted the new antlers on the head of the buck and said that these young males are sometimes called  “pretzel heads,”which is a reference to their “compact new rack.”Deer hunting season in Connecticut began in mid September and continues until the end of December. Hunters are required to wear fluorescent orange garments; hikers are advised to do the same.
