They were unconcerned with my presence. ~Vic

Great scene. I saw some in our backwoods yesterday.
I was shocked. I’m in my truck, heading north and…there they are. It’s broad daylight and they could care less. We have them in the front yard every night. And, I just got tagged (read: bitten) by a tick two days ago. Thanks, deer! *frowning*

Oh I hate ticks. Especially the small seed ticks.
We had a one legged deer that we would see every year for around 3 years. She got around fine.

Oh jeez no…she only had three legs…sorry…long day. Now that would have been a sight.
LOL! I was wondering. THAT truly would have been a sight to behold.
Go to bed! Rest! I’m headed there, now.
Yes mam lol… I’m watching some black and white Gunsmoke and I will go…
Aww…you caught a fawn! We have herds of deer in our backyard every night but we never see the fawns.
I’ve got deer in my front yard nearly every night. Doe, Fawn… Rarely see a Buck. I’ve seen yearling Bucks but, not the old guys.
Funny, because we get them quite often. 12 pointer last fall is still coming here every night.
We have too many hunters. You mention seeing one if them and you’ll have Dodge Rams, Ford F250s & Chevy Z71s parked in your drive and tree stands in your yard.
Our idiot Wildlife department turned loose Coyotes to trim the deer population…and didn’t tell anyone. They are over breeding, the deer are still here and, cats & dogs have become lunch. Then, those same brilliant folks issued a decree to shoot them on sight.
I was kidding about the hunters rolling up in your yard but, we do have a lot of hunters & taxidermists. And, deer jerky IS tasty.
I live in Maine… hunting is a state sport, not to mention an enormous revenue boost. Thankfully we and most of our neighbors are posted, but we get the occasional yahoo…. like the one who knocked on our door at dinnertime and asked if he could kill the doe standing under our apple tree. Out of season. Uh…no! Then there was the morning I went out to the garage and found a bullet hole in the back of my car. It was black powder season and some idiot shot at a deer from across the street…. right through our garage and into my car. His excuse? He didn’t think the round would travel that far.
I’d love to see Maine. I only get shots from the ‘Maine Cabin Builders’ show…or descriptions from Stephen King.
I can honestly say that the hunters around here wouldn’t knock on your door for an out of season doe in your yard. They are not quite that bold.
Did Mr. Blackpowder pay for damages?
He did… but only because we called the wardens on his ass.
Good for you!
The bullet smashed through our garage door and lodged itself in the back of my car, he paid for both. Good thing I wasn’t out there at the time. Crazy.
Yeah. Destruction of property is one thing. Shooting at people, even accidentally, is bad, bad, very bad.
Did he apologize or was he an ass about it?
He was mortified. He was hunting with his 2 brothers and it was the first time he’d ever used black powder. He said he aimed at a high ridge but clearly it wasn’t high enough. He was a school teacher and begged us not to press charges. He paid full damages, apologized profusely and swore he was never using black powder again. We didn’t charge…. but the husband gave him a good tongue lashing about firing near houses.
Good for him!
