Touching the Wild
Photos: Living Among The Mule Deer

Touching the Wild on NATURE takes place in the Wind River Mountains of Wyoming near the ranch belonging to writer, artist and naturalist Joe Hutto (“My Life as a Turkey”). These images, courtesy of Hutto’s book ‘Touching The Wild: Living with the Mule Deer of Deadman Gulch,” tell the seven-year story of Hutto’s introduction into the wild mule deer herd, his unprecedented access into the minds and social practices of these highly-intelligent animals – and ultimately heart-felt, familial connections with the deer as individuals.
