With each passing holiday season there seem to be more folks complaining about "Christmas Creep," where retailers push the holiday buying season further into early November. Some good anecdotal evidence that the Christmas season is starting earlier, is there appears to be more mule deer getting holiday lights wrapped around their antlers earlier and earlier. This year it's not even Thanksgiving yet and there are two incidents already in the media spotlight.
One is a buck in Estes Park Colorado that is on CNN . Another is a buck video out of Colorado Springs, Colorado that is on ABC7.com . The second buck has a respectable rack with the start of a drop tine on his left side.
