Bucks in Rut | Periscope

I went over to my parents house the other day to get ready for an episode of Tasty Food Live. When I got there, my daughter and I saw three great big bucks fighting in the yard. The rut is on in Minnesota. There is no question about it. I pulled out my phone and thought I would share this moment on Periscope. And share it I did! We had 325 live viewers and nearly 6 hours of viewing live.

What were we looking at? Here’s a couple of pictures:

In this video, you can see me walk up to within about 10 yards from these large deer. Follow me on Periscope at @Dan330msp for the blog, and @chrisashbach on my personal account.

One of the cool things was that I was able to have someone meet me in the middle of the Periscope and bring me a real camera. Here are a few more of the images I shot during the broadcast:

Mostly, this whole thing was funny, because I was told this exactly describes me now:

They gave a little chase on the hill …

All for one reason …
