WILDLIFE WATCHING -- Whether you're a hunter or a wildlife watcher, there's no doubt that this buck is shaping up to be a heart-stopper.

The elegant brute was photographed in its late velvet stage of antler development on Monday by Montana outdoor photographer Jaime Johnson.

Question:  Is it a mule deer or whitetail?

The photographer says it's a white-tailed deer.
