Rough guestimate is its a 4-6 point white tail buck. Nice pic.

Curious, how did you take the picture? What is the light bouncing off its eyes? Almost looks like a negative.

Yep Rick is right about it the deer. The light is just the flash going off

from the camera. Interestingly enough doe's eye shine is yellow/orange.

 

Take care,

Thats the flash bouncing off the back of the deers eyes. In humans it causes that red eye effect. Maybe deers eys are yellow in back instead of red. I think they are color blind.

re: the eyes...  it's called tapetum and helps those animals that have it see at night or low light conditions.
