It was the first day of the muzzle loader hunting season in December of 2014.  Matt Coxen was taken by surprise with a phone call from sharp eyed neighbor Barbara Edson,  who told him to grab his muzzle loader and look out the front window.  Matt was having his morning coffee at his home on Groton Pond.  What he saw was pretty exciting.Running across the newly frozen pond was a ten point buck in rut, pursuing a young doe .  He was able to take a few shots with his camera before they ran off and out of range.  Matt said the doe displayed no interest in her suitor.  Because the ice on the pond was thin , the bucks feet would break through the  ice at times when he ran.  It was just another one of those great days on Groton Pond.  Nice photos Matt.  Thank you for sharing your photos and story with us and thanks to  neighbor Barbara, for giving Matt the heads up.
