Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Sharing is caring!

Two white-tailed deer at Lake Kegonsa State Park

When dusk falls on Wisconsin it is not difficult to spot a white-tailed deer or two in the farm fields, prairie, or in the woods.  The white-tailed deer is the most revered animal in the state: even more so than the fabled badger.

This is due in large part to the mania that surrounds deer hunting season, but there is more to it than this.  There is something about the beautiful bright brown color of the deer framed against the green grasses that just screams Wisconsin.


White-tailed deer – Lake Kegonsa State Park

This picture was taken at Lake Kegonsa State Park near Madison.  I walked past this area earlier in the evening and there were no deer.  Then a little later I spotted a brown head sticking up from the grass and then two.  It was obvious they had slept in these grasses and had just woke up when I snapped this picture.


The goal of Traveling Ted is to inspire people to outdoor adventure travel and then provide tips on where and how to go.
