That deer is a tank
 My assumption is there is a lot of horn considering how big it is in body.

He was trailing hard.  I assumed when he came to the rock, heíd turn and Iíd have my epic shot with the rock in the background. He didnít even pause, up and over.

To your main point: Deer (and elk) have such massive hind quarters, they easily have the torque to power up steep hills--we all know this.  In addition, they are actually quite capable rock climbers.  It is really amazing to watch them "slither up" rock slabs, or narrow paths in rock faces.  I agree with your comment--it is astounding how well they climb.

Or, maybe the possibility of breeding made him forget his fear, and do something silly?  We know that young men often do similar things.   :o

That buck has stunning colors, not just the run-of-the-mill drab muley cape. It even appears he just had a bath, LOL! His coat (cape, hide, pelt, whatever we call it) really defines the natural camo that's intrinsically designed and evolved over the last 10,000 years.
