Backyard Deer races

PostBy: 4tees On: Thu Dec 24, 2009 7:17 pm

Looking out the backdoor the other day I caught a couple 1st year twins doing laps around the yard while momma deer watches. Third photo one of the deer standing on the ice of the fish pond.

Lucky dog you, we never see any deer in the backyard. Probably just as well as we're not hunters but it'd be so easy to pop one and have fresh venison heart frying in the buttered pan! :)

The funny thing is that I do not live in the country. I live in the middle of town. A herd of 10-12 deer live and move along an old railroad right-of-way that runs next to my yard.

Pretty cool. We have a motion light in our back yard to stop the deer from eating my wife's plants. The other night around midnight the light went on and it wasn't deer we saw. It was a bobcat which was pretty cool.

Bobcats, deer, turkeys, hawks......moose, bear, .....a 'WILD KINGDOM' out there. Love the animal pics and stories more than coal things. Any coal burner( yes, wood burners,too) knows that their animals just love a warm pipe chase, vent or warm surface to roll over and play dead on or near......Thanks for the pics!

PS: Don't tell anyone, but it's OK to toss out a little grain, carrots and a few apples for our woodland friends....they like treats too!

Gambler...yeah I posted the pics on IceShanty.com too... Hope to get out ice fishing soon. I am not a hunter...there is an 8 pointer in the yard once in a while although I haven't seen him in a few weeks.

The only problem with this deer herd is that by the end of the winter they have eaten just about all my plants and shrubs.

Wow, did somebody ring the dinner bell at the smorgasbord? Ladies night?

No dinner bell, but you should see the size of the sleigh they are lining up to be hooked to.
