    Deer Walks Right Up To Hunters

    Lauren sent me this one. I've had deer get close but never this close.

    About ten years ago, in early fall, I was traveling through the Adirondacks. Spent the night at a mom-and-pop motel...one of those old-style ones from the 1950s. Well landscaped and kept up...three row buildings, set up in a U; with a grassy commons and a U-shaped driveway bordering the commons.

    I came out about 7 in the morning...and there was a doe, right by my car. And came UP to me...obviously, someone had been hand-feeding this deer. She was looking for an easy, tasty breakfast.

    Now deer have sharp hooves and can use the front hooves to disembowel enemies...especially two-legged threats. So I kept my distance. Frankly, I was more afraid of this deer, being denied her due, than she was of me.

    That is so cool. I like it! And being a hunter myself, I'm glad they didn't shoot!

    About 5 years ago while we were hunting we came across this blind deer. It was sad but it was able to survive. Guys being guys my step son wanted a picture. He didn't shoot it but later the farmer sent his son over to put it down.

    At our place in Tennessee if you sit real still the deer will step on you.

    Amazing footage! They must have been fed by humans. Killing them with kindness.

    I took this picture at Baxter state park in Maine in July 2014. This deer was just chowing on the plants trailside and did not care that we were there. I was maybe 20' away when i took this photo( and a few more) and it went right back to chowing down when we left. I'm not a hunter so i don't get close to deer very often.

    They give me those doe eyes and it melts my resolve...I'll let them raid the wife's tomato patch and later prune the fruit trees and rose bushes after a heavy snowfall.
    I had tasty venison stir fry last night but somebody else pulled the trigger.uploadfromtaptalk1446002384951.jpg
