Deer-Mark? I thought you'd captured one of those elusive Jackalopes (Lepus-Temperamentalus) One of the rarest of American Mammals. It is thought to be a cross between a now extinct pygmy-deer and a species of killer-rabbit. There have been supposed/reported sightings of this rare animal from the West-Texas grasslands northwards through the midwest and mountain states. States such as Texas, Colorado, Wyoming, The Dakotas, Montana and even Idaho have all claimed to be the origin state for these seeming near-mythic creatures. ... I am glad that you all seem to be enjoying the trip though ... maybe you'll get to see a Jackalope in your travels. I never did - save for those stuffed and mounted that were for sale in rest areas and tourist traps in South Dakota and Wyoming - not to mention a couple of bars in West Texas. -- Ray --

LOL - we saw a postcard of a Jackalope today, and I can definitely see the resemblance... maybe we have discovered a new sub-species!
